Definition: to remove something completely because you don’t want it or because it is unpleasant.

E.g.1: Agh! There’s a spider in the bathroom. Can you get did of it for me?.
E.g.2: I have a lot of rubbish to get rid of in my garden. Could you take it to the tip in your van?

This phrasal verb can’t be separated.
