But if i do im afraid i burn my house down and placing it outside will just burn all the trees near my house. And finnaly end my house burning. Isn't there another way deleting my useless items because mineedit dosen't work but i got INVedit but its pretty stupid closing and coming back just for that. So should i build lava trash can?

Heres an idea dig a whole down fifteen blocks or so then pour lava down it and cover it with dirt know when ever you want to get rid of items just remove the dirt.

How about using a cactus? Dig a small hole in the ground/floor and put a cactus at the bottom. Then just toss your items onto the cactus and presto, items destroyed. And no risk of fire either.

I can't seem to put the cactus in trying to put it in the normal ground works.

you have to make sure that there is nothing adjacent to the cactus:

The cactus has to go on a sand block and must have nothing on the 4 blocks directly bordering it.

The lava is going to need a 3-block wide inflammable space surrounding it or else the potabo's are gonna burn your house down.

Or even just make a hole to dump your stuff. In 5 minutes it's despawned. And since it's just a hole, you can even make an access at the bottom so you can reclaim your accidentally thrown away diamond pick.

Here do this:
Side view-  :stair: = half block
:Diamond:  :cobblestone:  :cobblestone:  :cobblestone:
:cobblestone:
:cobblestone:
:cobblestone:
:cobblestone:  :cobblestone:  :cobblestone:  :stair:

Place lava like so-
:cobblestone:  :cobblestone:  :Bench:  :stone:
:stone:  :Lava:
:wood:
:wood:  
:--+:  :|:  :|:  :stair:

Once the lava is placed, place a block quickly (labelled as  :stone:)
:cobblestone:  :cobblestone:  :cobblestone:  :cobblestone:
:cobblestone:  :Lava:       []                            :stone:
:cobblestone:
:cobblestone:                                              
:cobblestone:  :cobblestone:  :cobblestone:  :stair:

I usually have it in a basement and the lava is 2 wide. Best thing is that you can't accidentally step into it because of the half block.  Works like a charm for destroying the million saplings you have.

My base is built out of stone, so I don't have this problem. I don't use lava anyway, though, and toss things into my fireplace instead.
I am a great big barrel of hate

I use something a bit like this (blue = water)

So drop em in, they float away, and then despawn. Only needs to do 1-2 spaces, and can have a recepticle are at the end too, for recollecting mistakes.

I think that

would be better.

Yeah thats just the essentials. I normally elaborate and build a small furnace looking unit around it, and half steps etc to direct the player, but the basic idea is cool, throw it in the water, water carries it away out of pick up distance, but having a catchment area for mistakes is a great bonus.

I prefer water disposals over lava purely for this aspect.

I just create a swimming pool or bath in my house and throw the items in it. To keep from picking them up before they despawn.

Not very elaborate but it works.

On the server me and my brother play on I throw them off a bridge.
