+1 for compost. Why waste what can otherwise be used?

I toss them out in the back yard. I usually walk out past the "lawn ornaments" you see in the picture.

Just be sure not to use any rice hulls in the batch you plan to make bread with. They add a texture which is not desired...

Excellent compost. If you don't compost, there may be a gardener you know who may like it. Very rich in nitrogen and cellulose (great for loosening soil)
