    If you bury them your just doing what the people told you to do at the tip at the end of the day if that rubbish goes to land fill. I would ring the environmental team at your local council they should be able to tell you what to do.

    If your household waste goes for incineration you could put them in there maybe.

    Our dustbin waste is incinerated locally at a an eco-plant (high gas capture technology etc). I should think that should be safe enough for my local users to destroy the pellets.

    If its used as fuel perhaps they should stagger their disposal?
