I dump mine on the hill of the side of my house- I don't ever smell it, and it keeps the people and dog out of my backyard/side yard.. I live on the corner and they like to come in the yard and get my dogs all worked up!

A groundhog hole is my spot. Not sure if he eats them, but that hole will never be filled up.

I have a large stump and hole that I am trying to get to rot. I put fireplace ashes and grains in it. It is also a never filling hole. Hopefully the moisture that is retained by the rotting grains and damp ashes promote the rot.

The local deer population love it. I have a nice secluded spot in my backyard that I dump the tun out into. Usually in a day or two they're all gone.

Deer near my house stick their nose in it but don't eat.

My dog ate some out of a week old pile in our woods and puked it all over the house. I wasn't' home, so the SWMBO had to clean it up.

I simply double-bag mine in garbage bags and it goes out with the weekly pick-up.

Give mine to the neighbor to feed his chickens.

I fear the spring thaw. My tumble composter is full and will be placed on the garden come spring. Now compost is being stored in a trash can that freezes. I already have 2 brews in the the trash can, will probably have two more by the end of the month. The smell will be pretty bad when the can unfreezes.

I plan on moving in a year or so and one of the things I need to do is build up a sizable enough compost bin/pile that it doesn't freeze in the winter and stays active.
