When I was real young, my grandpa used to get the organic solids waste from the local sewage treatment plant to spread on his fields for free. It was almost a slurry and couldn't be spread when they brought it out, so it was dumped on the edge of the field and allowed to dry out over the summer to be spread after harvest. My dad and grandpa swore they've never ate better tomatoes than the volunteer plants that grew off the slurry pile as it dried out.Which made
headlines in the local paper because of all the volunteer tomato and melon plants that popped
Been explained is a norm to burn as many as can pack in, just do not wish to be first caught.
That's kind of how it happens around here too. Guys do it, just dont get caught.
I grew up in a dense residential area around a lake. My neighbor, who's house is 40 ft from my parents, decided to burn a small pile of brush on a large pile of tires instead of pay for disposal. The black plume could be seen for miles. The fire department got called out to extinguish the fire and he got fined heavily for it. Later, he lost the house to foreclosure (650 sq ft POS house on .1 acre lot). My dad bought it and we discovered that partially burnt pile was still on the back edge of his lot, under all sorts of other junk he left.
