Heat your house from waste paper, leaflets and junk mail!

Heat your house from waste paper, leaflets and junk mail!

This technique basically comprises of collecting a load of waste paper, leaves, grass clippings etc. Soaking them in water (ideally free rain water) and them pulping them into a paste and creating paper logs.

They will burn for hours once you’ve got a fire starting and are an ideal way of saving money on buying logs.

Ways to improve this technique:

  • Use collected rainwater
  • Get a bulk load of it created in the summer months for burning in the winter
  • Use a better technique to collect the unused water

The final outcome:

A rather solid log that will burn for a fairly long time.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
