Offerings: A Question

Upon completion of a ritual last night, I suddenly found myself in a bit of a problem: I had no where for my offerings to go.

I live in an apartment, with no garden space or dirt to speak of, not even in the little courtyard. All of the parks that are convenient are very nice, but largely made of concrete, and the ones with a bit of earth, so to speak, are a fair distance away.

I don't want to leave my offerings just any old place, and I don't have anywhere nearby to burn them or bury them.

After a few moments, I couldn't think of anything else but to just put the offerings in the trash. I asked the spirits to whom the offerings belonged if that was okay, and I got the sense of "hmm... well, if you can't think of anything else... it's okay... but think of something else, eh?"

So. This is my question. Any of you urban pagans have the same problem, and if so, what do you do? Where or what are some good methods of... disposal--as it were--of offerings? Any suggestions or thoughts are much appreciated!
