Composting "difficult" materials on the cheap

If you eat dairy or meat, how do you keep the scraps out of your garbage?  

Background:
  • I live in a townhouse, with a small patio.  I do not have room for a hot compost pile or to bury meat/dairy items.  
  • I do have a worm bin, but this may actually violate my HOA's goofy rules.  And of course the worms can't take meat or dairy.
  • The only place I could put a composter outside is a very small/narrow area.  
  • I have seen the NatureMill, but spending $300 to compost my meat and dairy seems more than a bit excessive.   
  • My city has a composting program, but currently only accepts yard waste--they will not accept even vegetable waste yet.

HOAs make it difficult. I'm in a trailer park, but it's basically been cut out of the woods, so I toss it outside for the critters. It's probably not the best answer, but since they dig in the trash for it anyway (I'm terrible about remembering the lid) I just give it to them and save the clean up.
