Summer may be almost over, but that doesn't have to stop us from throwing some burgers on the grill!

tips for safe grilling

You may be wondering what to do with that leftover ash from your charcoal. BIG has the tips for safe grilling this summer!

The most important thing is safety first. Let that ash cool down. Charcoal burns at close to 500 degrees. Think about grabbing something out of the oven with your bare hands and then multiply it. Not only can you burn yourself but the ash can start a fire, especially given how dry it has been. And you certainly don’t want to melt your BVR Waste and Recycling garbage can! So let that ash sit for a couple of days to cool down. What next? How about recycling it? If you use wood charcoal without additives, you’ve got a great fertilizer.

If you’ve got a different kind of charcoal, wrap it in aluminum foil and throw it in your garbage bin – NOT your recycling bin. The foil keeps it from melting things around it.

So get those ribs ready and fire it up!
