May one throw out Sukkah decorations? (Halacha a day)

Since the S’chach (branches covering the Sukkah) were used for a Mitzvah, they deserve some respect even after having done their duty.

After Sukkot when the S’chach is taken down, one should not trample on it.

One may throw them away, but one may not use them for disrespectful purposes like building an outhouse.

One may burn S’chach.

Care should be taken with decorations that have Torah verses written on them.

Preferably one shouldn’t hang up such decorations, but if one did, then they need to go into Geniza or otherwise carefully looked after.
