Tips For Bonfire Night
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.

Bonfire safety tips
Build your bonfire well clear of buildings, garden sheds, fences and hedges
Never use flammable liquids to start a bonfire and never burn dangerous items such as aerosol cans, paint tins, foam furniture or batteries
Always keep a bucket of water or a hosepipe nearby in case of fire
Don’t leave bonfires unattended. An adult should supervise it until it has burnt out. If it has to be left, damp it down with plenty of water
Check the area to make sure there's no wildlife or pets hiding nearby

Smoke from bonfires
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.
