I have heard many times that when something used for or somehow related to a mitzvah cannot or will not be used again, it should be thrown out "respectfully".
- What exactly constitutes throwing out something respectfully and is it different depending on what is being thrown out?
- Should something that is not technically a tashmish kedusha/ tashmish mitzva/ tashmish d'tashmish but is other wise associated with a mitzvah be thrown out respectfully?
(I am asking this because my tefilin bag* was worn out so I bought a new one to replace it. If you could include what I should do with that specifically in your answer it would be appreciated.)
*The plastic bag, not the cloth one.
