The most compact way would be to disassemble the set only partially, to eliminate all empty volume but keep the parts connected, as a bunch of loose parts take up more volume as the same parts assembled.

Here is an example how you can remove tiles from inside the plate (taken from one of recent mosaic set's instruction): Even though picture shows variation of classic orange, which is narrower than pictured above, same technique applies to both. LEGO has ...
