Many people are out working in the garden and clearing the garden waste.
Thinking of having a bonfire?
Can you avoid burning, burn cleaner, burn safely?
Bonfires can cause harmful particulate air pollution at home and in your neighbourhood. This negatively impacts the health of your family and community, affecting your heart and lungs.
Avoid burning: Instead of having a bonfire, compost garden waste at home or through council garden waste collections.
Burn cleaner: If you do need to have a bonfire, only burn dry, untreated wood and don’t burn household or wet garden waste.
Burn Safely: Follow fire safety advice, be aware of the impacts of air pollution and consider your neighbours, community and wildlife.
