Strong winds combined with an unseasonal amount of snow combined with dry pine needles, dry leaves, brush and branches brought down by previous nor’easters makes for very dangerous burning conditions. It is much safer to dispose of your brush and branches with an open top roll off dumpster from Dumpsters R Us. Brush fires have already been reported in Londonderry and Manchester, New Hampshire.
Published Mar 23, 2012 “With the lack of rain, much of Northern New England continues to be in a dry spell. The dry conditions combined with increasingly gusty winds (Friday) up to 30 mph, as well as relative humidity values in the 20 to 30 percent range, may produce critical fire weather conditions on Friday,” the weather service statement said.

Construction and demolition debris is made up of brick, stone, mortar, asphalt, lumber, wallboard, glass, roofing, metal, piping, fixtures and electrical wiring. This debris needs to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way and it the hazards of burning need to be fully understood.
It is illegal to burn debris from homes and other buildings as they may contain a number of hazardous materials including plastics and other petroleum-based products and chemically treated woods and fibers. When burned, these materials emit toxic fumes that can pose great health hazards.
The burning of waste can lead to toxic emissions like dioxins, volatile organic compounds and hydrogen chloride. People near the burn site could potentially experience eye and skin irritation, breathing problems, and even central nervous system issues like dizziness and headaches. Burning construction debris is a serious health risk. Burning construction and demolition materials sends pollutants into the air that effect our health and environment. These pollutants will contaminate our lakes, streams, soil and feed crops where they enter our food chain by embedding in animal fat and dairy products.
