    Hey my hamster has just died but I need to get rid of it. Does it go in the regular rubbish bin or the organic waste? I don't want my rubbish to be left at my house!

    Thanks.

    I don't think you can put dead animals in any sort of refuse collection, but check with your council if you think they will take it. Personally my hamsters had burials in the river behind my house.

    Not a good send off 'thowing it in the bin'

    It needs to be buried in the garden or something like we did with ours when i was 5 year old.

    OR you could give it a proper funeral and play that old Heavy death metal track he used to love when running around in that ball.

    I live in a flat. I could throw it into the woods actually, it would bio-degrade.

    Bury it in the garden in a box (so dogs etc don't dig it up), or contact your vets tomorrow and they can organised for it to be cremated.

    I don't see any reason it couldn't go in your regular household waste - you can throw away chicken, leftover meat in that which will degrade, what's the difference?

    I'd bury it in the woods rather than just chuck it.

    Well if I bury it then a dog will just dig it up and eat.

    if you live in a flat then just chuck it in a field/foresty area somewhere. it'll biodegrade or get eaten.

    we buried my hamster in the back garden when i was younger. we obvs hadn't made the grave deep enough because the next day he had been dug up and eaten by a fox

    bless my brother though, he thought God had taken "gingerbread" to heaven!
