I have found that the incinerator burning of waste veggy materiel oop t'lotty is missing a chance to improve patches of open areas waiting to be cultivated. I burn old cane prunings, knackered bamboo canes, hedge trimmings, all sorts of stuff, too hard to compost, and make a neat pile in an open patch. Leave it for a week or so, then with a scrap of old newspaper, burn it and then rake the ashes around that area. It provides pest control where the fire was, potash to spread around, cooks the slugs and pests directly under and Roberts yer Uncle ! AND you get the fun of a good bllaze as well, to satisfy the primitive side of you !
If you don't have room for a bonfire, use a metal wheelbarrow,
