I have been digging a mine and now have a slew of dirt and cobblestone blocks. How do I destroy them permanently and keep them from filling up my inventory?
You have a few options:
- Throw them into a pool of lava
- Throw them into a cactus block
- Throw them into fire
- Explode them (items will be destroyed if they are in the radius of a TNT or creeper explosion)
- Just throw them on the ground and forget about them and they’ll despawn after 5 minutes. This is generally longer than desirable, however, which is where the other options come in handy.
