Limiting your garbage pile up - Tip

by Lindsey

After we eat and have paper plates and cups, we stack them up and when the cooking is done, everyone takes their plate, cup, spoon or fork, bowl or whatever paper product, and put it in the fire. Our garbage can is not nearly as full and the animals do not have anything to scrounge for. All left over food is put in the fire also.


Thank you, Lindsey, for that great tip. I know our garbage can gets full very quickly if we don't burn all paper products. If you don't like all the forest critters in your garbage, the best thing to do is burn it, then they won't have any reason to hang around!!


I really appreciate you sharing your great tip with us. THANK YOU, LINDSEY!!

We do the same thing! Getting rid of as much food leftovers is the only way to keep those rascally raccoons out of your site. After we get through cooking, we open the grate and throw anything burnable into the fire and it gets consumed. The only thing that goes in the garbage bag is cans and aluminum foil.

We burn plastic, paper, food left overs, boxes and bags. The clean up is easy and the kids like to "do the dishes". Make sure you don't throw anything in there that is flammable. Kids can sometimes get carried away with the fun of watching stuff burn.

Happy camping!:)
