Simple but effective. I went with a paper bag so it can be burnable too and easily swapped out as needed.

Since it's warm right now and we haven't been doing fires for a while, we have quite a bit of burnables piled up.

We do the burn bag, as well.  Not everyone in my household follows rules well :-(, so we're down to newspapers, junk mail, and small boxes.  The labeling is for them. I got tired of fishing out things that didn't belong in there.  The rest of us are pretty good about removing plastic, foil, etc and not filling the bag with things that have food residue on them.  I keep it under the counter next to the kitchen since the table and counter are usually where burnables come into the house.

ETA: That's not showing up very well.  It's labeled:
Adolebitque

junk mail
boxes from packaged stuff
- (break them down, please; remove any plastic; no food residue)
newspaper

NOTHING ELSE

My first post!

Using my cell phone to upload so not sure how it’s going to turn out.

Don’t actually have a wood burning stove yet but looking to make a DIY rocket stove within the week.

It's nice to get stuff separated.  Here is an idea about your burn barrel.  

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=burn+barrels+rocket&&view=detail&mid=BB030629D67EBA075D6CBB030629D67EBA075D6C&rvsmid=F48C92C4735F4578669AF48C92C4735F4578669A&FORM=VDRVRV

Do notice the lack of smoke which indicates a complete, clean burn of the materials.  This particular approach emits a subtle roar when it kick off.  Once started, we toss in the miscellaneous sticks and twigs from our forest floor.  

Being lazy, we use a butane torch to ignite the pile.  

We don't burn leaves.  They get mulched and left to decay over winter.

Please note that the requirements have been adjusted to specify any type of container.  Also the label needs to be near the container but not written on or attached to it unless it's a long lasting durable container.

Setting up a small burn collection, using a paper grocery bag because we have been doing grocery pickup a lot recently and have a surplus of paper bags.

Placing it conveniently next to trash can in kitchen.

Am I able to bump this thread for badge approval?

Waiting on a few badges to get approved, so just wondering if there is any timing to know if they got missed or I just need to wait longer!

I have placed our container in the kitchen near the trashcan. This seems to be the place we most often create burnable trash and the defacto place for disposing of it. This should mean that it gets used.

I set this up next to our recycling bin in the garage to intercept the small burnables.
