You?re looking for a garden incinerator and here you are. At first glance, you say to yourself, ?Hey, that?s just a galvanised dustbin.? Well, yes and no. Intrepid do-it-yourselfers have been making their own incinerators from galvanised cans for more than a century. On closer inspection, however, a galvanised steel incinerator has several important features: a chimney lid, an ample number of holes in the walls for ventilation, and optionally even metal feet to raise the incinerator off the ground.
To use your incinerator, begin a fire in the bottom with newspaper and dry twigs. Let the fire get hot (about 900-1000 degrees Celsius) and then feed in your plant debris. Let the debris burn completely down to ash and wait until the ash is completely cool. Then you can pour the ash back into the garden bed as it makes an excellent soil enhancer. eBay offers quality, locally-made household incinerators in sizes from 90 litres to 210 litres. One caution: make sure backyard burning is permitted in your area first.
