Garden Bonfires

posted 7 Jul 2019, 03:42 by Chorleywood Residents' Association
For the second year in a row, we have received comments of concern from residents about garden bonfires. Before using a bonfire to dispose of garden waste, we would ask residents to consider both the impact on their neighbours and the overall environment. 

The smoke from garden bonfires can seriously impact the ability of neighbours to enjoy their own garden and can have a significant negative impact on those with conditions such as asthma.

As burning garden waste releases locked in carbon into the atmosphere, in an age where we are all trying to reduce our carbon footprint, recycling garden waste through the districts recycling centres or the council's brown bin scheme is a simple way to reduce our negative impact . The nearest Recycling Centre is in Riverside Drive, Rickmansworth and is open 10am - 6 pm Thursday to Monday.  Further details on the council's brown bin scheme can be found at
