I would like to use this to hold pellets for my stove. Would a 40-lb bag of pellets fit?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 12, 2012
Answer:The size and construction of this ash bin will likely not allow it to carry a full 40 pounds of wood pellets. My recommendation would be to fill the bin with no more than 25 pounds.

Do the lids on these snap on tightly? We haul our ashes in our car and want to make sure the lid would stay on in case it tipped over.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 7, 2013
Answer:The lid on this item is indeed designed to provide a tight friction fit. However, a large enough impact could still cause the lid to pop loose during transportation. I recommend securing the bin with a bungee or strap to prevent it tipping when it is full.
