Ash In your green bin. If you have a coal fire rake through it properly to make sure that the coal is burnt. Coal naturally contains sulphur and therefore will make soil acidic, so any ash that remains should not be put straight onto soil or into a compost bin. Please make sure the ash is cool before placing it in the bin. Green Bin
