Boston ivy

I've just removed a Boston ivy (parthanosis cinqifolia) I think, is it safe to put on the compost heap?  My heap doesn't get hot and am worried that it will start growing again.

    I'm guessing there is a lot of it. It is always best to chop things up before putting them on the compost heap as this gives it a fighting chance of rotting down more easily. This should stop it regrowing, should it have a mind to do so.

    Thanks for the advice. Will give it a go when I get the shredder out.
