The garbage disposal company sent out a flyer reiterating that they do not take any ashes hot or cold bagged or loose. I live in a pine forest so spreading the ashes or using them in a compost is out of the question because of ph. I hear from some that ashes on the driveway works as a good snow melt but others say no. Also when the snow melted it would just wash into the pines anyway. What are some other options to dispose of ashes?
