In this Badge Bit, you will set up a system for Collecting Burnables.
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are you must set up a system for collecting burnables:
- Label near where burnables container is placed
- Including mention of what materials are okay
- If the container is durable the label can be on the container
To document this BB, post pictures or a 2-minute video depicting the following:
- Burnables Container Placement
- Label for Container & Acceptable Burnables
- A Burnable being placed in the container
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:
boxes from packaged stuff
- (break them down, please; remove any plastic; no food residue)
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.

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.
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.
