What is a solid waste incinerator? What is a solid waste incinerator?
A solid waste incinerator is basically any fire that is used to dispose of garbage. Although this may include a burn pile in a person’s back yard, the term usually refers to a manufactured assembly that has an access opening located at or near the top for loading garbage into the incinerator, a door for removing unburnable items, a chimney unit, and some type of ash removal tray. Capable of producing extremely high temperatures, waste incinerators can burn almost any type of garbage other than metals. Never place flammable or explosive liquids such as gasoline, spray paint cans or any other spray aerosol cans in the incinerator.
