Burn Leaves Safely in Lawrence County
There is nothing prettier than to watch the leaves fall here in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. However, those gorgeous, bright leaves eventually fall to the ground and litter your yard in colorful splendor.
Bagging them and dragging them to the curb seems like a lot of work. Check your area’s burning laws first, but burning materials such as yard waste, grass clippings and leaves may be permissible depending on your town’s ordinances on open burning. SERVPRO of Lawrence County is here to give you some tips on how to safely burn leaves.
- Using a fire pit is your best bet to keep the leaves contained.
- While burning the leaves, do not add any additional garbage or burnable items to the fire.
- Do not use any flammable liquids such as gasoline to ignite the debris.
- Make sure you are always watching the fire, making sure nothing gets out of control.
- Keep a garden hose nearby in the case you need to put it out in the case of an emergency.
Other safe alternatives include: grinding the leaves into mulched or chipped landscaping material, schedule a pick-up with your city or town, call a yard waste or junk removal service.
