Bonfires can be a fire risk, so we'd always recommend looking for alternative ways to get rid of your waste, but if you do have a bonfire, make sure you follow our safety tips.
If you're burning garden waste, remember that the greener the waste, the more smoke it produces. This may affect your neighbours, and even cause concerned citizens to call us to report a fire.
Alternatives to consider include composting, and checking if your local council offers a garden waste collection service instead.
