I am looking to buy coal in bulk. I have a coal bin that holds 2+ tons and the since the last year, the company I used to that use to deliverer to me is out of business. Now I have to buy it by the bag which is too expensive. Does anyone know of any any local distibutors?

I think it's against the law to burn Coal now because of the Enviroment.coal puts out a terrible black smoke and we burned it in Idaho in the 1960's but I believe I'm right in saying it isn't allowed now.hopefully someone with better knowledge than myself will know for sure.why not call your local Enviromental Protection Agency in your phone book and ask.

I used buying coal in Pa.in a Google query and found that people in Pa.can't get it either.Because of Fed mining regs and miners health costs production has vastly dried up.I live in NNJ and thought of putting a coal stove in my garage.Couldn't find any dealers in NJ,north or south.End of story for the stove.

Stelton coal & feed company sells coal in parts of new jersey (732)247-0711
The burning laws in my state (WA) is that if your ONLY type of heat is coal you can burn it. Or if you have ONLY wood for heat, you can burn on "burn-ban" days. But, use care when burning wood or coal, back when we heated only with wood, we noticed that when there's a high pressure front (sunny days) you can cause your neighbors grief because the nasty smoke stays near the ground & "leaks" into the homes of others close by, especially when you stoke the fire down for the night. When there's LOW pressure, the smoke will rise & cause less of a problem to your neighbors.
---> I heated with only wood for 15 years, (While raising my kids I'd have to get up in the middle of the night to stoke the fire so the house wouldn't be freezing when they got up for school) I now have an electric furnace & can tell you this: IF you can afford to change to electricity (or gas) your life will be much easier, & the planet will thank you... But, I know that not everyone can afford to make the change.... You don't know what you're missing until you can simply click a switch & *PRESTO* the home warms up! ... No muss, no fuss!

Did you ever find a place that sells coal in South Jersey. I did. Contact Stelton coal in North Jersey and they still do carry it but the distance is far and they will deliver for a cost.

Anthracite coal is the cleanest burning fossil fuel. There is almost no visible smoke released from burning anthracite. All these stories about "black smoke" most likely come from the burning of bituminous coal, which burns dirty.

Most if not all Agway Farm Stores sell bagged coal in NJ. Buy it by the ton and get a better price. Also Ledika in Trenton sells it by the ton.
