When you'd like to get rid of large waste items, take it to a drop-off centre or contact a special company to come and pick it up. The professionals will segregate and possibly recycle your waste. Some products, including refrigerators and other electric appliances, have to be recycled properly not to pollute the environment. You can also use the internet or newspapers to sell goods which still have some value.
