While I was searching on Google I came across some instances of carry out and I was particularly attracted by the following:
The thief comes for the precious things, not to carry out the rubbish.
According to MW, carry out means:
1 : to bring to a successful issue : complete, accomplish 'carried out the assignment' 2 : to put into execution 'carry out a plan' 3 : to continue to an end or stopping point
Which of the MW defintions do you take to explain the meaning of carry out in the above sentence? I have thought of #1, but I am unsure of this choice because it would imply that the rubbish would be equivalent to the assignment.
