    We replaced 3 toilets one time and my husband sledge hammered them into small pieces that fit in an empty mulch bag and went in the trash. Seems as if someone could do something with the shiny porcelain, but not us..

    I have told my friends “the day DH and I stop bickering with each other is the day you KNOW we are getting divorced.”
    We like engaging with each other, haha.

    Well, that would be a solution in some cases but

    1) we have sunk major money To completely side it, roof it, and put in new windows. On the outside it looks nice. It was match worthy when we bought it and we wanted to tear it down but

    2) it is in a historic district where we cannot tear it down

    For a while old toilets were a hot item, as well as new ones being smuggled in from Canada, because the then new low flow requirement resulted in toilets that did not consistently flush completely.

    Aside from following the EU lead with regard to health care, I'd also like to follow their lead in having toilets with two flushers. No reason to waste a ton of water flushing pee. Regardless, I did get low-flow toilets for my bathrooms, and they work fine. I'm not that crazy about my low-flow kitchen sink faucet, though.
