I use Aspen bedding and then a small layer of hay on top (and a big eating pile on one side along with a hay manger full of hay over the litter box). Being all biodegradable, I take it to the edge of my jungle property in the way, way back and just dump it.

Since I use plain wood pellets (for the two indoor rabbits, the outdoor rabbits have drop pans) that and their wasted forage and hay go on the compost pile. When I think it's too much wood realtive to the grass stuff to make good compost I dump the wood litter in my little 500m² forest.

Funny enough, just last week I did this barefoot (walking to the back edge of my property to dump the box) and stepped on a bumblebee and got stung. My $50 fair show rabbit bought on a whim at the behest of my kids has turned into $600 of supplies and an $800 vet bill and a bee sting in just a month. I love little $1,500 Freya to death though LOL!

Expensive little furballs aren't they! Good thing they're so cute 🥰

My wood pellet litter goes right into the compost pile.

I just get a green bin bag and dump the hay, paper pellets, carefresh and whatnot into it and put it in the compost bin

They are. Fortunately we were prepared for it as animal people and with financial stability. Being an animal person and a researcher, I've been able to learn a lot quickly and give her the best life that we can and probably the best life she would have gotten.

This is kind of tough. On the one hand a lot of rabbits need homes, on the other hand I've learned that most people aren't in a position to have a rabbit. They need a lot of space, they cost more than one would think, and they need more attention and care than people are led to believe. So I would love bunnies to get homes, but I would also tell most people that getting a rabbit is a bad idea even though it was a good thing for us.

I do the same thing. When people see my cute bunnies and talk about thinking about getting one, I always tell them they're very expensive and complicated pets to have. Great pets and interesting(to me at least), but definitely expensive and complicated.

Agreed. I originally wanted 2 or 3 bunnies, but after getting the one I said this is a lot of work and a little pricey. Not only that I love my little Jack so much I didn't want anytime to be taken away from him. I also have 3 cats and 3 dogs. I read this forum everyday and always learn something new.

What do you do to dispose of your rabbit litter?
Um... put it in a garbage bag that goes out with the weekly trash.

I could probably, like, bury it or burn it or something, but that seems like too much work, and my neighbors would probably start wondering what's going on :D

(You composters must be out in the country or something. I've never seen that before.)
