avoided. Burn only dry feedstock and periodically add extra waste to the fire to be able to maintain high burn

temperatures until all waste has been destroyed. If waste is to be open burned on the ground, the use of heavy or steep-walled

‘pits’ should be avoided as this will avoid the necessary turbulent mixing of oxygen with the burnable gases.

Desired operating temperature should be achieved as rapidly as possible when operating any burning or incineration device.  A

rapid’startup’ can be reached by first loosely loading dry paper, paperboard packaging and untreated wood into the bottom

of the device. Dry, loosely packed material will ignite more quickly and burn more evenly than a wet, tightly packed load.

Wet waste should only be added after  the fire is actively burning.  Overfilling the burn chamber will prevent the turbulent

mixing of burnable gases and oxygen, and should be avoided. Additional waste should just be added to those incinerators once the’cool down’ phase has been

completed and it is safe to do so.
