Placenta disposal question

Okay, so my daughter is 2 weeks old now and I still have the placenta. We had no desire to keep it for anything, but we don't know how to get rid of it. Aren't there rules about how it has to be disposed of? We are in Ohio, if the laws vary by state. Thanks for any help!

I've heard of people burying them in the yard under a tree.  They're a good fertilizer.  But I live in NC.  If you own your house, it probably won't matter.

We let the midwives dispose of it. I am guessing you UC-ed?

We burried ours in the front yard...then planted rose bushes!
