Disposable BBQ’s

Posted on 8 May 2019

As the weather starts to get nicer and we start to gradually get into BBQ season, we want to give you a few tips and things to remember when disposing of a disposable BBQ or BBQ ashes.

Safety Tips

Ensure the BBQ is on a flat even surface, on either bricks or paving slabs (don’t burn your grass!) and keep it well away from trees, shrubs, fences, dens and sheds!  Keep children, garden games and pets well away from the cooking area and always keep a bucket of water or sand nearby for emergencies.

Disposing of your BBQ

Please always ensure the BBQ is cool before attempting to move it. Its best to leave the BBQ for several hours and you should always pour water over it.

We recommend waiting at least 48 hours before wrapping the coals in foil and disposing of them in the general waste. Alternatively, you can take your cold and fully extinguished disposable BBQ to your nearest HWRS but please note, Westhampnett is currently only taking Green Waste.

Please ask for assistance from a member of staff on site regarding your BBQ’s disposal.
