    Disposal of skins and bones

    Has anyone got tips on the best way to dispose of the carcass after it has been butchered? i only do a few a year so quantity shouldn't be an issue

    Double bagged and in the rubbish, or to the local council tip.

    Mine goes in the bin, although that said my 'clever' bin man did refuse to empty my bin one day.... a quick phone call to the council and a separate wagon was sent out to empty my bin, has never been a issue since!!!

    Must admit i always want to put in bin or take to tip but didnt think it was acceptable with the recycling issues ,so my local butcher allows me to take them to his bins , i will be interested to see other views on this .

    I know it's different for different local councils, but our black bags are for landfill. We have a separate collection for recycling.

    Sometimes in the bin, and other times I put it all out for the foxes, crows and kites. Its amazing how quick half a dozen crows can strip off all the meat. Last time I did this I dropped the cut up remains in the middle of a field whilst walking the dog, 1/2 hour later whilst whilst walking back to the truck I counted 8 red kites circling over the remains.

    If you are using your own home bin... if you use the heavy duty rubble bags that can be bought from the likes of B&Q they are very effective in keeping the contents sealed in, especially if you secure the top with a cable tie.

    Via the landfill collection
