Supreme LBYM recycle creosote

My woodburner has been a bit sluggish. A sunny day and 45F so brushed the chimney, cleaned out the stovepipe. About a half bucket of black stuff.

Put it in three paper bags, fired up the stove with some wood. When nice 'n hot and down to glowing embers, add a bag of creosote.

Presto, recycled stuff and more heat from waste. Later will add another, then another.


Can you top that?

I've heard of someone who has put himself on every mailing list imaginable. He heats his place by burning the sacks of paper kindly delivered to his door every postal day.

I don't have or buy much stuff in the first place.
If I don't use it, I give it away to someone who can.
If I can't give it away, I donate it to the thrift store.
If I can't donate it, I recycle it.
If I can't recycle it, I try to burn it.
If I burn it, I take the ashes and put them in my garden area.
If I'm lucky and diligent, I get vegetables from the garden area.

The stuff that doesn't fit in the above process gets thrown away. I have a large curbside trash can (45 gallon, I think) that I take to the curb about twice a year.
