Thanks! I guess that fixes the 'not in my backyard' theme. But that still spreads it at landfills? I suppose one could bag it and let it sit for two weeks first.On Pg 3 of the report/memo from RatGuide that you referenced in your post, they mention this on how to dispose of bedding:
"When dealing with rat waste and used bedding it is recommended to spray it downwith a bleach solution to prevent airborne particulates. Wetting the bedding fully,double bagging it in strong plastic bags, and putting it in closed trash cans will deterwild rats from interacting with it and becoming infected."
Hope that is helpful.
