Bye bye bonfires?

Now the splendid new waste disposal site is open in Sidmouth, is it too much to hope we shall see no more of these dreadful bonfires spreading their acrid smoke sometimes for hours on end.

I have managed a sizeable garden for nearly 30 years without once having the necessity to light a fire. In any case, there are other ways to dispose of garden waste.
