We don't have organized trash collection in this part of Maine either but we do have a dump / transfer station. My wagon does a good job actingas a garbage truck.... Except I bet there are not many AWD garbage trucks that get mpg's in the 30's. You sound very resourcefull I bet you can find a solution better then an open fire. Maybe you could make a proper incinerator? It is important we all need to try creative approaches to solve dificult problems.

Where do you live and when do you have open burns I'll be sure to stay the heck away!

Good tip on the fleece, our nylon 6 & 6.6 is a bit differnt but check out Eco-mills the make great fleece from plastic water bottles!

Ok here is a reuse tip for your list. I cut the bottom off from windsheild washer fluid jugs. They make great scoops to spread sand & salt mix (free at my town muni lot) on dirt rd. I reuse 50 gal drums from work to store the mix at the top of each steep hill, my neighbors are happy with my efforts.
