Ashes and used charcoal should be thoroughly saturated with water and placed in your trash. Do NOT place any ashes or used charcoal in a municipal compost site or dumpster. Dispose of wood ashes in a metal container that can be tightly closed, douse with water, place the closed container outside your home away from combustible materials and leave in the container for several days before disposing of them in your trash. Never assume that cool ash is safe unless you have soaked it.
