In order to keep a home clean and sanitary, it is necessary to take out the garbage on a regular basis. There are many variations to the way trash, garbage, recycling and composting are handled. In some places, there is a government agency (or more than one) that picks up the trash, builds sewers, and handles recyclables. Other locations require individuals to take care of these services or use private contractors.

No matter which technique is used to remove the waste from the home, one household chore is identifying and putting it the correct place for removal. This can involve emptying trash or garbage cans into outside bins, trash shoots, recycling bins or garbage dumpsters. Or, it could involve driving the waste to a garbage dump.
