Whether it’s a mattress, an old appliance or construction debris, when you’ve got something you need to trash, it’s not always as easy as throwing it in the weekly pickup. Large items need special care in order to be taken away — and, more than that, they need intentionality in their disposal if you want to minimise their resulting impact on the environment. That means, when you want to dispose of something but don’t know how to do it, you need a basic understanding of where and how to get rid of goods.
