Halocho #1663 - May one throw out Sukkah decorations?

Since the סְכָךְ (branches covering the Sukkah) were used for a מִצְוָה, they deserve some respect even after having done their duty.

After Sukkoth when the סְכָךְ  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 סְכָךְ.

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.

גַּם לְאַחַר הֶחָג, כְּשֶסָּתַר אֶת הַסֻּכָּה, לֹא יִפְסַע עַל הָעֵצִים, וְלֹא יִשְתַּמֵּשׁ בָּהֶם לְדָבָר מְגֻנֶּה, מִשׁוּם דְּתַשְׁמִישֵׁי מִצְוָה נִינְהוּ, כְּמוֹ צִיצִית 

אָסוּר לַחֲקוֹק פָּסוּק בַּסֻּכּוֹת תֵּשְׁבוּ וְגוֹ' אוֹ שְׁאָר פָּסוּק עַל דְּלַעַת וְכַיּוֹצֵא בָּהּ לְנוֹי סֻכָּה, מִשׁוּם דְיָבוֹא אַחַר כָּךְ לִידֵי בִזָּיוֹן. וְעוֹד, דְאָסוּר לִכְתֹּב פָּסוּק שֶלֹּא לְצֹרֶךְ
