You can't throw anything "away" because there is no place called "away".
Instead, your trash is driven dozens or hundreds of miles in a huge truck and then thrown on the ground. It's called landfill.
So, its helpful to set up your own recycling bin in your room or home if you don't already have one. Fancy or plain, a used box, a bag or other container, anything that works.
When your bin is full you can take it to a local recycling center, library, supermarket, town facility, etc.
