from Randy, the Park Manager.
This car 12 volt car battery was found dumped onto the Park’s burn pile this morning. If it had been covered with debris and the pile set on fire much larger problems may have occurred. Batteries produce hydrogen, which is explosive. This is not only hazardous waste, but would have endangered those park members and employees tending to the burning pile.
Remember, for future reference… batteries can be recycled at Les Schwab, in town, for free.
And only wood, brush, clippings, trimmings, and such should be put on the burn pile.
