Fireplace Logs from Newspapers


To help people learn that energy can be recovered from trash.

Make fireplace logs from newspaper. This saves trees.


containers large enough to hold several soaking logs
used twine or string


1. Take eight pages of newspaper and lay unfolded on a table lengthwise. Lay broomstick at the
top of the paper.

2. Tightly roll the newspaper around the broomstick to about 8" from the end. Overlap another
eight pages and continue rolling until you have a good size log.

3. Tie with used string or twine (3" from each end).

4. Soak overnight in water. The water will break down the paper's fibers and reduce the amount
of fly ash when the logs are burned.

5. Take the logs out of the water and bang them on the ground to pack the paper.

6. Remove the broomstick and dry thoroughly.
