How Do I Throw Away a Trash Can?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I have an old plastic trash can that has served me well, but is well past its prime. I know this sounds like a silly question, but I keep trying to throw it out, but the waste management workers must think its there as a garbage receptacle even though it remains empty week after week. So how do I throw my pesky old garbage can away? And as a followup, I'm wondering if you and Apartment Therapy readers have any great suggestions for a new garbage can for my kitchen.
