Lubbock Residents Urged to Extinguish Fireplace Ashes

City officials are urging residents to make sure that their fireplace ashes are cold and completely extinguished before placing them in the dumpster.

It takes only one spark to ignite all the trash in a truck or dumpster that is why city officials are urging Lubbock residents to properly throw away ashes.

Here are a few tips:

  • Place the fireplace ashes in a metal bucket.
  • Pour water over the fireplace ashes.
  • Wait until the ashes are cold and completely extinguished.
  • Properly dispose of your extinguished fireplace ashes by bagging and then placing them in the dumpster.
