Halacha - throwing bread in the garbage
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

The issur of bal tashchis, wasting, is especially severe regarding bread which is the staple of the human diet. Therefore, in order to prevent the bread from being ruined as a direct result of being placed in a dirty garbage can, it is wrapped.
