Be con­sid­er­ate with your bon­fire

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

GAR­DEN­ERS are be­ing warned to think about their neigh­bours be­fore build­ing bon­fires to dis­pose of gar­den waste.

Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil has urged gar­den­ers to use re­cy­cling fa­cil­i­ties in­stead, which can be more en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly as well as pro­tect­ing neigh­bours from un­wanted smoke.

If a bon­fire is the only op­tion for dis­pos­ing waste, the coun­cil is­sued the fol­low­ing ad­vice:

In­form neigh­bours be­fore­hand

Choose a time of day and weather con­di­tions care­fully to min­imise dis­rup­tion

Site your bon­fire away from win­dows, trees and fences

Do not burn wet or green gar­den waste, which cre­ates heavy smoke

Do not burn oily rags, rub­bing, plas­tic or items which cre­ate toxic fumes
