The ashes can be added to your compost pile - consider them a carbon rich material which you'll need to offset with an equal amount of nitrogen rich material (such as grass clippings). Or, you can use the ashes in your garden - but don't exceed about a 5-gallon bucket full of ashes per 1000 square feet of garden.
