SOME THINGS THAT YOU CANNOT THROW AWAY ARE JUST COMMON SENSE

My father irked my nerves as a kid. He was always telling me that I didn't have any common sense. I was just a kid, I didn't know what I hadn't been taught yet! Some things, however, ARE just common sense, like knowing you can't toss away certain items in the garbage. I don't care if you live in Oregon, Washington, California, or anywhere this side of the Mason-Dixon line, you can't throw away certain obvious items.

YOU'VE SEEN THOSE 'YOU CAN'T THROW THESE AWAY' LISTS BEFORE, BUT NOT THIS LIST

You've probably seen other articles talking about things you can't throw away in Oregon, like tires, and mattresses, and yadda yadda. When I was getting scolded by a plumber for pouring one of those extra-strength clog drainers down my bathtub drain, it dawned on me that my dad was right and that I didn't have the sense the Universe gave a chicken. Was it illegal for me to throw away that empty bottle of Drano?

(Fortunately, it is not illegal to throw away empty bottles of Drano in the garbage!)
