Throw it out
If you have residential quantities of unusable cookware or housewares, place them in your black cart. Please do not put them in the blue cart as they can damage the sorting machinery.
If you are throwing out a sharp knife, package it safely first by wrapping in two layers of paper and then placing it in a bag or sealed cardboard box. Label as "sharps" with a permanent marker and place in your black cart.
