Ahaa! I see what you're talking about.

We use the idiom "sell off my assets" but I've never heard "dispose off my assets." I think perhaps because you may sell a few at a time, but to dispose of, or to liquidate assets refers to the whole package.

Well, that's not true either. I guess I really don't know why we don't say it. We don't say "liquidate off my assets either." (I don't think)
Please make sure that you make "assets" in the plural.
i had noticed the oxford dictionary once and there was the phrase 'dispose of'. But most of the people who don't care about grammar use 'off' instead of 'of'.

How about this:

Some people irresponsibly disposed off their garbage.

is this correct?
