The unconscious mind may be hinting to you that the time for “throwing out” unnecessary things is at hand. The garbage in your dream could also represent those things from your past, or in your life today which are not worth keeping, or that are literally rubbish. If you dream of seeing many piles of garbage then it is an omen to change your ways before you turn all your lovely things into garbage. If you are disposing of garbage then it foretells that you will have to clean up someone’s reputation and the mess he or she has made of their lives.
