We were talking about offerings and sacrifices over in the Hazel and Oak SIG, which spun me off into talking about how best to dispose of offerings without soiling the environment. I have alley cats I feed, and my own cat goes in the front yard... not to mention the birds, the cats I don't feed, and whoever's dogs get loose running around the neighborhood. I don't want to put anything out in the yard that will harm the critters or kill my grass or plants.

How do you dispose of your offerings or used spell materials (like wax candle stubs)? Do you just chuck them in the trash? Pour them down the sink? Take them outdoors into the yard or other wilderness?

Have you thought about the affects that your leavings might have on local wildlife or the environment?


Usually, unless there is a lot of negativity associated with an item, I just throw it away. For offerings of food to the gods, I eat them. For offerings to Fae, I leave them outside, or throw them away, depending on what has been offered and where I live. Incense ash gets tossed, as does candle wax/burned herbs. Usually, I only take special precautions with negative stuff, in which case that usually gets buried.
