Who else has a large pile of boxes and paper? ๐ŸŽ

Remember to not burn these in the fireplace!


Like cardboard or painted wood, boxes and paper with colored print or other markings on them can come packed with chemicals.


Here are a few examples of boxes you should never burn:

Cereal boxes

Pizza boxes

Wrapping paper

Magazines


Another fireplace safety tip regarding these materials is to watch for dangerous fires. On top of the chemical risks, these materials tend to have a high surface-to-mass ratio. Unlike wood, which burns slowly over extended periods of time, paper and boxes will burn quickly. This can lead to tall flames that might ignite creosote in your chimney!


Stay safe and Merry Christmas! ๐ŸŽ„
