There are some days when cleaning around the house really feels like a chore. Sometimes people are on a cleaning spree and start throwing away everything in the house. But the next time you have the cleaning bug, you can't throw just everything in the trash in Sioux Falls.

The City of Sioux Falls has rules and regulations in place for items that can and cannot be thrown away. Any items on this list from the City of Sioux Falls should be sent to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Some hazardous items on this list are actually surprising.

As a general rule of thumb, there are certain items named on the Komando website and that are illegal to throw away in your regular trash can. You can even face some serious fines if these illegal items are found in your garbage can. These illegal items include the following:

  • Household batteries
  • Smartphones and tablets
  • Televisions
  • Car batteries
  • Lighters
  • Leftover paint
  • Motor oil
  • Prescription drugs

The City of Sioux Falls has its own list of items that should be transported to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Some household items listed really surprised me. Apparently, you can't throw away nail polish or nail polish remover in your trash. You also should not throw away cooking oils. This includes vegetable oil and grease. It is also recommended to throw away old microwaves at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility.

The next time you decide to do a little spring cleaning, make sure none of these hazardous household items are not in your garbage cans.

Here Are 13 of Your Favorite Fried Foods

Some foods need a fryer, others should never go near one. Forget baking. We are so obsessed with eating deep-fat fried foods. And every time you turn around, there's another menu filled with most of the items that have bathed in a hot-boiling fat vat.

There seems to be no end to what a deep fat fryer can cook. And we prove it every day with our love of crispy, greasy, burnt-tongue, salty foods.

I won't argue that an order of onion rings or sweet potato fries is the best marriage partner to a burger. Especially when they are made from scratch. So, pile them high.

What are some other delights that need the fryer?
