just to sound a cautionary note--
the FBI has asked the entire country to be on the look-out for anything/anyone who "has knowledge of spores" or any biologic-type debris in their trash or dwellings. such as petri dishes, liquid cultures, etc.
this could spell trouble for any amatuer myco-freaks out there who are careless in disposing of their waste products.
so clean up your acts, tighten up your own security and more than ever, keep your hobby a secret from anyone who knows you.
because some fool might just tip the FBI that he saw weird shit growing in jars, heard you talking about spores, etc.
and before you know it,
you're busted as an innocent victim of this manhunt.

Use a trash can or dumpster that is far away from any growing operation! Even the trash collectors are suspicious these days.

shit, i wouldn't even do that,
what if the garbage man sees the shit, tips the feds,
and they swarm over it and find your fingerprints, hair fibers, dna, etc. ?
better to dump in the woods, bury it, burn it, etc.
leave nothing to be found.
and don't be seen dumping it either!!!

Beware tossing your stuff in a dumpster somewhere else, it could backfire. I used to work at a place where students would come and put there trash in the dumpster to avoid getting there own garbage service. My boss would pick through bags to find the name or address of the people who were dumping and report them to the police. Of course, I'm sure you all know not to leave shroom garbage somewhere and leave personal info with it but be warned that dumping elsewhere can be risky.

I personally use my toilet for flushing old casing and the garbage disposal in the sink for cakes and rice although I have cut into small pieces and flushed cakes. Al foil I rinse off to eliminate any traces of casing. The clean, crushed Al foil I dispose of in a public garbage can separate from garbage that has my name in it. Baggies used for any shroom procedures I cut up with scissors and flush. Thats goes for addresses on packages that syringes or spores were sent in. Old syringes..I take the needles and clip into smaller pieces and wrap in duct tape sticky to sticky. The syringes I melt into a lump with a propane torch. Although I only have this kind of garbage occasionly I take great care nonetheless. Fingerprints nowadays can be faxed to fbi in washington and get a computerized match/response in less than a half hour. But only if you've been booked or have your prints on file. So interesting garbage could be given a name real fast. Going through garbage is one of the oldest tricks in the book for police or identity thiefs.
