I don't have a problem with wood smoke, never have. However, I do have a problem with the garbage burning smells, which usually happen ONLY at night. Last night I woke up to the smell of smoke - GARBAGE BURNING SMOKE! That was at 11:30. TOO LATE TO CLOSE MY WINDOWS - THE NASTY SMELL IS ALREADY IN!, now at 4:45 my eyes are so itchy and throat sore from it.(WINDOWS WERE CLOSED AS SOON AS I WOKE UP TO THE SMELL!) That is something I should not have to deal with. Its not wood that is being burned - it is garbage. Why do you think they do it under the cloak of darkness.

If they want to burn for a social activity, then stick to dry untreated wood, DRY WOOD to keep the smoke to a minimum. Recycle your garbage - NOT BURN IT!

I know someone that used to have a woodburning furnace. Used to....he was burning plastics and garbage to bother his neighbors but it backfired on him. the neighbor complained so much that codes took an air quality sample which showed he was burning illegal things. after that the village forced the offender to get s new gas furnace costing him thousands!! Lol ....karma
