What do you do with your spent grain and empty bottles?

A: At first we were “donating” our spent to use in compost, chicken feed, and even by bakers.  Then the Agriculture Department came by as said we had to stop, there is a license for that. 

As far as bottles, we do a few things.  Sometimes we have a surplus of empties and it is quite the task to clean and take off the labels.  When we decide not to clean them, we let homebrewers come and get them.  We do clean and reuse our bottles from time to time, it is a lengthy process.
