Trash is free heat for my shed...

I have a 30 gallon barrel stove that eats trash well...Keep the damper and governor open and feel the heat...Stir it once in a while and add more trash...Old phone book is worth an hour of heat in a 10x12 area with no insulation...Trash ashes do not go in the compost or on the garden...They get spread on the driveway for ice control...

I did it the easy way. Had a hole dug six ft deep 8 ft accross. Put ONLY paper trash in there during dry times and burn it when it starts to rain. Been using the same hole for over 6 years. I put a section of feild fence around it and that keeps the animals out. I have 5 trash cans and take them to the dump about once a year they are for the garbage that dose not burn. Getting harder to burn in a lot of areas nowdays! When the hole dose fill up I will dig another one next to it and cover it with dirt from the new one. So far I think maybe another 6 years and it will be time to do that. Mark H.

A 275 gal oil tank with a Barrel stove kit. Legs to match the truck and a stack out of the top, call it an incinerator, also good during dry seasons.

I sell just what you need-

I farm and when my 55 gal. oil barrel is empty I sell them to the public for $10.00(cheap) and people burn their trash in them, You set it on concrete blocks and when they get full you take something called a shovel and place the burned debris in a bag for the local landfill or ditch, whichevers closer, If your real strong , just dump it onto your pickup.
Let me know and I'll send you the plans for $19.95 plus shipping-later Big Fat BOB

And now you mentioned your SUV, the tires off them are good to put in the bottom and keep the trash burning too.
Later Bob

Metal box with A P Green brick liner and stack with a screen to act as a spark supressor during the dry season. Put it on legs to match the bed of you truck. Also put a grate about 8 inches off the floor to burn the trash on and this will sort the cans from the ash.
