    Since the slash pit is only open on a limited schedule, the forest service should insure the pit is well maintained during those dates and times to keep the slash pushed and burned if needed. Just as residents have to plan ahead to clear unwanted and dangerous debris, the forest service should plan ahead to keep the pit open and operational during the scheduled times. Also, if you are in line waiting on your neighbor to unload his slash, get out and help him. This will help speed things up.
