Where to throw away mattresses

First make sure you wrap your mattress in plastic wrap or some kind of protectant. 

On a day with a lot of trash, put the mattress out. Your mattress is prepared to be deposited on the curb next to your garbage can once it has been wrapped in plastic. Wait until the morning of your monthly “heavy garbage day,” when bulky trash items are accepted, to place your mattress outside. To find out what day this is in your area, visit the webpage for your local trash management agency.


Beethoven never knew how to multiply or divide.

The renowned pianist went to a Latin school called Tirocinium, where he was taught some math but never learned multiplication or division—only addition. Once, when he needed to multiply 62 by 50, he wrote 62 down a line 50 times and added it all up.
