I now face again that there are bones left. And i think what to do? The safest thing is to throw it in the general trash which will burnt in the factory.

This trash will be burnt here in Germany. Also i could do it in the compost trash from the comune. Do you have any facts if this attracts animals or is unhealthy. The compost isnt in the backyard, its a bin which is emptied once a week.

The garbage which will be burnt wont be good for the environment. What to do with bones and this leftovers which are fall off. If there is a special beauty bones i can make some crafts or bone needles or primitive jewelery.

Then its better to lay them in vinegar or salt water to remove food particles.

Im excited for your ideas and experiences.!!

Ps: Do you understand the "cradle to cradle". The concept of the forests and ecosystems. Everything is used again. no waste.

No idea. Burn on the bbq. Or just roast them a long time in the oven so you are assured no marrow or meat is left.

WOW Adam, thank you. What effect have they for the soil. I know biodynamic steinar gardeners put this cow horn with grinded hoof under the earth for some time. Then get it out again put it in water. Stire 100 times in one direction, stire 100 times in the other direction. And after spray it on the crops.

Seriously they burn trash here in Germany. So far i know they closed a lot of trash mountains here and now try to burn the major. There are different trash and garbage concept for each small commune. Some recylce the plastic in every little plastic group PE PP and so on. Other have only one garbage and recylce it later. other have compost, plastic metal, paper, and general trah. Burning bones in the general trash with all things together like chemiclas and plastic and so on. This is harmful for the environment. They exploring to make it more friendly. ITs still a quest.

Bones are crumbly after they have been used to make broth, so crumble them into your garden soil. Serve the vegetables you grow with a future meat meal... Life is a Circle.

Eat some of the bones. Seriously, bones become brittle in preparing broth and can be eaten. Tasty too.

If you don't eat them, bones will break down to add nutrients back into the soil. Cradle to cradle at it's finest. Your cooking of them will speed that process.

Could use in composting, but you'd likely want to char them to remove any trace of marrow or meat which would attract animals.

I second the broth, add some apple cider vinegar to help get the minerals from the bones. I've also composted bones, it takes a while though and it CAN attract critters. Jewelry is another thing- I've seen some beautifully carved bones (http://www.etsy.com/shop/NancyChase?section_id=6663028) and I'm sure you could come up with other ways of incorporating bones into creative things.

Wait, you're worried about burning bones? Really? Because that is going to do what exactly? My awesome computer model tells me that burning bones will not cause the Earth to spontaneously explode. And seeing as it it was about 6°C in frigging Los Angeles this morning in April, umm, please burn the bones, we could use a little warmth over here, thanks.

Also, do they seriously burn trash in Germany? I was pretty sure that the EU forbid cellular respiration or any other activity that released CO2. I can't believe you ecofriendly folks would be burning big piles of trash, that is totally Third World.
