: : I am compiling some of my grandmother's old sayings for my children's family album and, as always, very much appreciate your help. One of her favourites was, "Good riddance to bad rubbish!" Is this of British or Irish origin, and is there a similar American saying?

The saying is very well known in the U.S. I don't know where it originated.
