wasp nest disposal

hi, I removed a wasps nest from a laurel Bush recently, and wondered if it can go on the compost heap ? it's the first time I've come across one and it's such a wonderful construction, clever little creatures

    Can't see why not - it's just wood and wasp spit. I'd break it up first though - like you do with cardboard

    So few children see things like that nowadays ... do you know anyone with connections to a school who would like to take it in for them to marvel at?

    It's also wonderful paper-type material for art projects. I'd say, try and find someone who would love it. I cut up the paper into strips and kept it.
