If they are burning ganja, it might be like the Drop the dead donkey scene.
What if they plan to burn all the chemical stuff? Potential health hazard?

;-) Yeah, I was going to say it could be a fun thing to go and see (and smell) for a day out tomorrow in PP, but those chemicals look toxic, and they will burn the plastic bags of course.

Usually it's done outside. If anyone sees the action, please post. (And please take a mask.)
