Cool it before you throw it

It is important that ashes and cigarette butts be completely cooled before placing them in the organics cart. Strathcona County has experienced a number of fires as a result of improperly disposing of still-warm ashes.

Before placing the ashes in the green cart, douse ashes with water and stir with a shovel. 

Store your organics bin a minimum of two metres away from the side of your house and any combustible materials if possible.
