Description: Ash pit near ovens needs to be emptied

Ash Pit Near Ovens
Request date: April 26, 2006

This is the ash pit near the ovens -- could you please ask Dave what's the best way to empty it (hasn't been emptied since last year). Rec staff could shovel it into trash bags, but that will need a lot of bags, since the ashes are heavy. Would they like to come and take it away themselves, in their truck? Only needs to be once a year, I think. But it should be pretty soon because the pizza days will begin in May and that adds up fast.

Repeat Request date: May 01, 2006

Tino, was there any response to this request?

Response date: May 05, 2006

The parks staff will be providing some hard sided containers, so that the rec staff can put the ash in the containers and then the park staff will have it removed.

Alternative action taken: May 14, 2006

No hard-sided containers arrived so staff gathered up all the winter re-cycling boxes they could find and filled them up with ashes, to make a start.

Response date: May 21, 2006

Hard-sided containers must have been emptied by maintenance workers (see photo).

Our ash pits are full - we had agreed with parks at the start of the summer to shovel ash into hard-sided containers that Parks could pick up. We never got those and now have run out of the recycling bins we used before. What do you suggest?

Response from Parks supervisor Peter Leiss to park staff Mayssan Shuja:

Gus and Tom will deal with the ash shortly. Maybe even tomorrow. This the first that I have heard of this so perhaps you could let me know directly.

From park staff Mayssan Shuja to Parks supervisor Peter Leiss, Sept.13 2006

Thank you so much for sending Gus and Tom and Frank over this morning. I spoke with Gus today and he asked Frank to leave us some more containers so that we can make a habit of filling them ourselves for pick up. Now that i remember, it was Brian Green with whom we had previously made the arrangements re: ash pit removal. So thanks again for taking it on so smoothly.

The agreement was - there are three ashpits, 2 for campfire (near cob and center of park pit) and one in front of our big oven, we would get containers, we would fill containers, maintenance workers would pick them up for disposal when containers are full. It seems that with the Tom's bucket, he can easily pick up the ashes from the 2 ash pits. No need to fill containers there. thats the basic picture. Needs to be done maybe 4-5 times a year.
