How Does an Incinerator Bin Work?

Garden incinerators burn through garden waste very quickly at very high temperatures. They are extremely hot. Once the fire gets going, you can burn things in your incinerator bin extremely quickly.

They can even burn through wet waste most of the time due to the intense heat. The holes in your incinerator bin are key to allowing the fire to burn properly. The bin will also be raised so that air can be pulled in from underneath to help keep the fire alive.
