What is the best way to remove the ashes from the fireplace?

When disposing of ashes, always place the ashes in an airtight, metal container. The closed container of ashes should be placed on a non-combustible floor or on the ground, well away from combustible materials until their final disposal. Red hot coals can stay warm in ash for several days so it’s imperative to make sure everything has cooled down and to be cautious of where you are emptying your ash.
