Just how big is that puddle if you got whales in thar? :shock: :lol: Heck I use mine on the driveway & any extra on the dirt road but my Township said I'm more than welcome to dump it in their yard & they will put it to use, that's mostly all they used on the roads in my home town when I was more younger & still use it here every winter, better than salt.

Usually two 45 gallon totes. It's a nice country drive and he appreciates it very much. Gave me a bunch of deer meat last trip. :)
If needed I use some for the bottom slope of my own driveway.



The guy across the street has this long sloping driveway that is paved and has been taking them for the last two months once he found out we had them, I only have to roll them over to the door in the garage. :D H e comes over once a week and takes the tubs in his truck and then brings them back empty.

He must have enough now, not sure what he's doing with them now.

Other than that my Brother has a spot he's trying to fill in, ashes will never do it alone even in 30 years but it's some help. I think I might put a sign out front once the guy across the road has what he wants becsue having them removed by someone else can't be beat.

Hi Richard.
I had a few low spots at the bottom of my yard, but I filled those in years ago with the coal ashes. :P When I went all wood for a few years, disposal wasn't
much of a problem. Returning back to coal a couple years ago, ash disposal was a main concern. The gentleman I give them to now says he'll take all he can get.
Works for me. By the way, were approximately are you in NEPA?
