Plastic disposal is a problem for many communities. While most plastics burn at low temperatures they produce a lot of unpleasant and dangerous compounds as they do so. Much higher temperatures are needed than a simple open fire can produce. By following this method it is possible to dispose of plastic relatively safely. The method works best in firm sand, such as on a beach near the high tide mark.

Tip: pack plastic bottles with light plastics and papers.

Warning: The fire is very hot. Never stand downwind and be careful of exploding bottles.

Burning plastic is a last resort when no other method works. Best is to avoid plastic packaging in the first place.
