Taipei (June) Customs officials working at Taiwan’s biggest shipping companny found several tons of ivory inside big, wooden boxes labeled “sisal fiber.” Smuggling experts say that as many as 400 elephants were killed.

On trash pickup day in your neighborhood, you push your can out to the curb, and workers dump the contents into a big truck and haul it away.
I would recommend reading Ina May Guide to Natural Childbirth (whether or not you plan to use pain meds).
