Yard waste patio heater ?  RSS feed

I've recently moved to a new town that isn't very good about collecting yard waste. I've been composting it, but I don't have much use for compost. I was hoping I would be able to give the compost away, but that is not proving to be very successful. The town has told me I don't need a burn permit to burn the waste, but I don't really want a burn pit in the middle of my yard. I have a propane patio heater and I was thinking about replacing it with a rocket stove or sawdust stove. The waste is mostly grass clippings, leaves, sticks and branches. With some saw dust, wood chips and shavings.
Would a sawdust stove packed with dried, mulched grass, leaves, and sticks work? Otherwise I figure I will have to make paper briquettes with the yard waste mixed in.
Also does anyone have any ideas or pictures of a small space heater type stove? I'm thinking of keeping the mass low since it will only be fired for a few hours at a time, and probably keep it close to a rocket stove in a barrel to radiate the heat. Only smaller scale, like metal 5 gallon bucket instead of a barrel.
