what do you do with the runner bean/broad bean plant after it has given beans?



I would cut the stem off at ground level, and compost it, and leave the roots to compost in situ.

Just to follow on from Tugbrethil, the roots have nitrogen rich nodules on them that will rot back into the soil and condition it.
