FWIW, we use pine litter and love it. Smells yummy too!! [and we toss it in the trash once it's soiled]

Yes, just about anything can be tossed in the trash including any cat litter whether it compostable litter or not. I prefer to compost for numerous reasons and it is especially thrifty!

Here is an excellent site about it. I like the idea of just finding a high area in the yard, digging a space for it and just leaving it after it's full for a nearby plant or tree to benefit from. I may try that also, instead of harvesting the compost and spreading on ornamental, not edible, flowerbeds.
