Assuming you're a composting household, where do you put your compost when it's ready to use?

We collect it all year and then in Spring we shovel it into the hothouse and it makes fabulous fertilised soil for our tomatoes. Sometimes we even get a surprise vegetable out if it, last year we got rogue pumpkins in the hothouse.
I just use it to fertilize my plants and garden.
We dig it out all year round (as otherwise we run out of room in the compost bin!) and use it to replenish the soil in our flower beds. We have also built up one bed in the past, to make it raised above ground level.
It also has a secondary use, to put off other cats from coming into our garden. We use compostable litter in our cat's litter tray, so when the compost is spread out in the garden, it carries his scent and marks the garden very firmly as his territory.
Our compost is collected by the council. When we move into our own place, I would like to use it for the gardens I plan to have.

I no longer have compost as have nowhere to put it however, I do give scraps to my worms in my worm farm.

They particularly seem to like when I blend scraps of fruit and vegetables and get through this fairly quickly.

They in turn produce "worm juice" and castings.

Our council does not even give us two bins to sort but everything goes in one bin.

Yes,we've always composted, but it just stays in the compost bin! What a waste!
