Chametz Burning

My wonderful, gracious host and I went to the Baltimore chametz burning this morning. I had never been before - it was quite an experience, very cool. There were about a ton of people there, all hovering over the flames and now I smell like burning bagels - yum. Good thing I still have a shower ahead of me. We came up with a question though - why do we burn the chametz? Why not just throw it away?

Im very suprised Shoshana, I had expected that you of all people would say because we want to Yoitzeh the Shita of Reb Yehuda. Preferably, we try to burn chometz, throw some in the toilet, eat some up rt before the zman, and declare it ownerless to fulfill all the opinions brought in the Talmud...
