what to do with compost from blighty tomatoes

Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere (I feel it must have been but couldn't find a thread), but what do people do with compost from tomato plants that developed blight? In the past, I have thrown it out with the general/non-recyclable waste, but would rather not if it's safe not to. Is it too much of a risk to spread it on the garden? (Even in areas where I don't grow vegetables.)
I have googled it, and people seem to disagree.
I suppose it's hard to say one way or another, based on anecdotal evidence (if you put it on the ground, then get blight the next year, you don't know for sure that there is cause and effect going on here. It's not scientific.), but I would still be interested to hear of people's experiences.
