Default Disposing of sand

What's the best way to dispose of sand? (I'm not sure of the type but it went hard if it got wet)

I'm switching my leo to reptile carpet so she won't become impacted

No need to get rid of the sand the risk of impaction is unlikely as long as your set up is correct. Reptile carpet is hard to keep clean and they can't dig in it.

If you have a garden you could mix it in to the soil. Alternatively if you have pot plants etc you could use it when you repot in the bottom of pots for drainage.

Throw it all over the garden .... helps with drainage and the smell keeps the cats away
