Last I heard, that's what land fills are for. You can always melt the plastic bags into a very small mass. Some folks just want to go to extremes, what do you do with the hundreds of Walmart bags and garbage can liners, etc.?

Coffee grounds good for the bushes or ground. Dump mine in compost pile, the wee bit of acid helps speed up the compost process. Coffee houses in our area will give grounds to gardeners by the pound to avoid putting them in the trash/landfill! Some grounds will swell if left in dampness over time, good get into tank valves, would chance it.

My plants love used coffee grounds.

I toss the grounds in the woods - once the water cools. I'd try them on fire ants if we had any. When global warming pushes those ants this far north I'll be ready.

Thanks for informing us that landfills are for disposing of trash. I had always wadded them all up and dumped them in the river along with my used motor oil and anti-freeze.
How is suggesting tossing coffee grounds into the woods going to extremes?
Some folks just want to argue.

Didn't mention not to throw the grounds in the woods, in fact, it's an excellent way of getting rid of them as they are biodegradable.

Fire flies are the same as lightning bugs. Maybe the nicest bugs on the planet. Fire ants are nothing but bad news and are not allowed in New York per recent law passed by our esteemed state government.
