In brief: Human Waste

Be mindful of your trash collectors.
You can dispose of them in regular trash, like you would a baby's diaper. I would recommend a strong plastic bag that is tied off. You may wish to have a covered trash bin in a closet or cabinet with a baby-lock, especially if you have dogs. Empty the can frequently to keep odors down. Wash your hands with soap and water for 30 seconds after handlin.
