Can I throw my microwave in the garbage?

Generally speaking, yes. There is nothing inherently hazardous in a microwave oven. You should check with your trash hauler just to be sure. If your microwave still works and you're replacing it, consider donating it to a local thrift shop. They can resell it and you'll get a tax break.

You can throw your microwave in the garbage. Any time I have thrown one away, someone picks it up from the curb to recycle the parts.

You could but you shouldn't. Microwave ovens can include hazardous materials including heavy metals such as lead. In some States is it illegal. Check with your city codes.
