I live in New Jersey, and dump my water out onto my
garden or landscaping. It's about 5 - 10 gal at a
time, so I guess the issue is if I'm close enough to a
watershed for the water to get into the ecosystem.
I've always done it this way in an attempt to save
water, and figured it was chock full of goodies.
Plants get snipped and placed in a plastic bag, tied
up, and thrown away. I've never frozen them, I guess
it wouldn't hurt to toss them in the freezer for a
day, although I tend to forget when I do stuff like
that. Probably not as bad as the time I put frozen
rats for my snake in the freezer and forgot to tell my
wife... ;-)
