MSW has been burned in North America by simply soaking it in a fuel and
lighting it up, or with various other low-tech means. This is not supposed
to occur anymore.
In Powell River, some ash piles remain from the "pit burner period". About
a dozen samples have been tested. TEQ ranges from around the detection level
to as high a 35.0 pg/g.
