Bonfire At Yard

Recommended Posts

I having been using private aprox 3 acre field to burn Hedge/Tree cuttings on a small controlled fire and have been using it as a yard for many years. I have recently had an anonymous neighbour complain about smoke in the form of letter from the council. There are only two properties in close proximity closets 100+ yards The leter was in fact very polite however did mention a possible abundance notice and fine if it continues! I have done reading on the web. Not sure what to do if I should stop and find alternative ways removing Tree & Hedge Cuttings or should countinue with more forethought for neighbours.

It is illegal to burn green waste on any site other than where it was cut.

Burning green waste releases no more Co2 than letting it rot.

Be interesting to see a proper study comparing burning waste against manufacturing, running and using a chipper!

 

Pointless, chipping increases Co2 production, only if the chip is used for fuel, saving the burning of other fuel can there be any positive to chipping.
