Bituminous Coal - Free if you haul it away

PostBy: youngs On: Sat Mar 16, 2013 5:26 pm

We found the old coal bin in our basement, and it was full of bituminous coal. Who knows how long it's been there, and somehow the previous owners neglected to share that it was there, under all of the junk they left behind that was stored on top of it.

We've given 1/2 of it away, but there's still approximately a 3x3 square foot area full of it. If you can haul it, you can have it. Location: Essex County, NJ. Please email sarahspag (at) gmail (dot) com if you are interested.

The coal is in various chunks. Mostly around 2-3 inch chunks, some larger, some smaller.

After much research, I assumed this was anthracite. However, the guy who hauled it away must have burned it and determined it was bituminous. I will try to find time to burn a piece today and let you know the results.

I think its coal with a lot of wood in it.... :lol:
Probably anthracite though, quite a bit of shine on a few of those pieces.
Needs a burn test. 8-)

some good twine and woodchips in their to get er' goin too :lol:

There is deffinatly antracite in that pile (but im 90% sure their is also bit as well, unless its some really poor anthracite).
this is a mix batch that has seen alot of loads and unloads (shovels, pallets and trucks scrapping up the last of a pile, etc.) before it got to its final resting place their ;)
Free is a good price either way for anyone who lives near you!

As previous photos show - this is old, anthracite coal that has been in my basement for years. Still useful for someone and it's free if you haul it away. In Montclair, NJ.Thanks!

A year or two ago I took coal just like that from a bin about 8 mi from here. The people that had lived there were well off so, They never let the bin get too low and as I got closer to the chute end the coal looked just like that, Loaded with fines and junk. They never cleaned out the bin! I gave most of it away to a guy that didn't have any money to buy coal, He is warm and I'm happy :)
