How To Dispose Of Bad Milorganite?

Q: I had a bag of Milorganite that I stored in a plastic bucket. Somehow the lid was shifted and now I have a smelly, sticky mess. Any ideas how to dispose of it? We live near a lake. 

A: My first inclination would be to grab some rubber gloves and a tuna fish can and carry the bucket to a spot as far away from your home and from the water as you can. Use the can to dip and scatter the Milorganite in all directions. It will fertilize your landscape nicely without continuing to express its noxiousness.
