Throw it away. Poinsettias are lovely holiday plants, but they require a lot of work to re-bloom the following year. So don't feel guilty about composting them after you are finished with them. Do feel guilty about putting them in the garbage - please 'recycle' them instead.
Save it for next year. Although poinsettias are difficult to re-bloom, you may find it rewarding to keep them throughout the year and force them to bloom for the holidays next year.
