BURN A LITTLE WISER IN SUSSEX COUNTY

The Sussex County Department of Environmental and
Public Health Services would like to remind residents to take
measures for reducing residential wood smoke.

If done properly, wood burning can be a safe and economical
heating method. Season your wood outdoors during dry summer months,
store wood outdoors, stacked off the ground, and covered on top.
Start your fires with newspaper and dry kindling or another option
would be to install a log lighter in your fireplace.
Never burn household garbage, painted wood, ocean driftwood,
or wet wood in your burning appliance.
