Ash disposal

Ash disposal

PostBy: Carbon12 On: Mon Nov 07, 2011 8:36 pm

Anyone have suggestions of a better way to dispose of coal ashes? I have been bagging cold ashes and putting them out with the garbage but wanted to know if there are businesses that want coal ash for any reason. Would municipalities take them to use as anti skid material? I live in Nazareth, PA. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Does it hurt to just dig a hole in the ground and pour them in? I've been thinking and wondering myself what I'm going to do with my ashes, this being my first year to burn coal. My trash can is not yet full, but will be soon.

Kinda depends how much land you've got & what you've got to dig the hole. I've been banking my stone foundation--it helps a lot draft wise--- plus putting a lot on the gravel driveway which hardens up nice come spring after a lot of rolling.

Hey, that driveway suggestion sounds like the ticket!! I rent a two acre farm and we have a long stone driveway. I've got several pot holes that my landlord has not gotten around to filling yet. So I could just dump my ashes in the pot holes? Otherwise, I've got two acres of land which is plenty for burying.

I'd surely work on my drive first & probably pile some up handy for spring fillings

I'm a driveway kinda guy too. I have a relatively long driveway, maybe 70 yards. It's just run of the bank gravel (read dirt) and developes potholes over time, usually right near the culverts that drain it. I fill these and other low spots and it works great.

I guess you could call those formations in the Badlands buttes, they fit the definition....... I wasn't thinking that when I drove through there, but what the hell.
