According to the DNR we may burn only the materials
that are allowed to be open burned--namely, leaves,
plant clippings, paper, cardboard and clean, untreated
wood. Burn barrels operate at low temperatures (400-
500 degrees F), resulting in incomplete combustion of
the wastes being burned. Burning prohibited materials--
such as plastics, asphalt, rubber and other man-made
materials—generates hazardous air pollutants)
Instead of burning consider: Recycling newspaper,
office paper, cardboard, corrugated cardboard,
magazines, aluminum, metal and acceptable plastics.
(Free at the recycle center.) Composting leaves & plant
clippings. Chipping brush and clean wood to make
mulch or decorative chips, or use it as heating fuel in
wood stoves or boilers. www.wdnr.gov/
