I dump it around the barn anywhere it's muddy or icy or eroded. It helps dry up the mud and after a summer of the horses trampling it, it's all gone!

Before the first snow this year I dumped the ash pails "up in the back" the day before the snow. :doh: . Since then it's all going on the driveway.

I put it on the driveway when it needs it, but no way I could put it all down. I have two long driveways and if I put all my ashes on there all year long I think I'd have a 3" taller drive by the end. Plus it's kind of messy looking. I end up taking it to the dump, but it's a hassle. Maybe I could find somebody looking for fill or something.

I would love to use it as fill or driveway sealer but that's hard when you have a foot of snow or more, I would hate to see the snow blower hit that lol. I have been dumping mine on the edge of the lawn, seems to work out just fine

I am using it to build a rock reinforced dirt ramp up to the new coal shed.The stoker makes some fluffy ash but mother nature knocks it down pretty good.

the local landfill takes all kinds of ash at no charge, so i fill a couple
55 gal drums behind the garage and load them in my pickup when
i take my trash to the dump every few weeks.

heard talk of some undesirables in the ash, and i live pretty
much on a swamp!

I have been dumping my ash on the dirt road at the end of my gravel driveway. It's been great for traction with all the snow and ice!! It sure beats having to dispose of the chunks of residue from the corn I was burning for the last two years. 8-) :rambo:
