So, What Can't I Throw Away?
While many materials can be tossed into a dumpster and hauled away, there are quite a few that should be recycled, donated, or individually disposed of to better protect the environment. Some of these materials may cause harm to the environment as they decompose, and some present significant safety risks to sanitation workers. For that reason, there are a number of materials you should avoid adding to your regular trash.
Besides potentially containing hazardous pieces or harmful chemicals, automotive parts can often be scrapped for extra cash when properly donated and recycled. Rather than throwing these parts away, consider selling or even giving them to a scrap dealer to make some extra pocket change.
Much like automotive parts, appliances like refrigerators, dishwashers, and clothing cleaning appliances have many parts that can be salvaged or scrapped long after the appliance is useful in your home. They also often contain chemicals such as coolants or oils that may become hazardous once dumped.
Electronics are another useful item that may be able to make you some money once you're finished with them. For instance, old cell phones and TVs often make appearances at pawn shops, and there are specific e-waste dealers that can handle their recycling.
Paint & Other Chemicals
Paint and aerosol cans are often found amongst the rubbage, but these materials present a significant hazard if not properly disposed of. Aerosol cans can easily burst if not fully emptied before trashing, and paint often contains chemicals and toxins that can cause further harm to the environment. Luckily, most areas have guidelines on where and how to dispose of these materials properly or even companies that may be able to recycle the cans or their containments.
