RE: Disposal of creosote soaked railroad ties

Depending on what you mean by burning, this might release a lot of PNAs/PHAs
and other bad stuff--not a good idea. A better use of this material is for
landscaping.  Around here used railroad ties get a good price.

Subject: Disposal of creosote soaked railroad ties

Any good ideas for reuse or recovery of quite a lot of creosote-soaked
railroad ties?  I've been told of a method of burning them then using the
ash for bricks???
