The video "Waste Not, Burn Not" was developed under an Office of Environmental Assistance grant by Chisago County. This 9 minute video is an excellent tool which discusses the variety of myths held by society concerning the backyard burning of household wastes. The video also discusses options for disposal of wastes rather than using back yard burn barrels.
For more information about back yard burning and on-site disposal, contact Mark Rust at the Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance toll free at 1-800-657-3843.
