Cane Toad question

If we kill toads by freezing them, and then bury them or place them in compost, will the poisonous toxins affect or contaminate the soil and other worms, insects, etc and if we add the dead toad to the compost heap how soon do the poisons break down?

The poisons appear to break down quite quickly after the toad dies.
