    How do I recycle steel casings?

    What the most discreet way to recycle spent casings? There's large recycling dumpsters near me, but I'm wary of using them-namely someone (or the city) getting freaked out.
    I'd appreciate any suggestions, other than throwing them in the garbage.
    Thanks

    If your local recycling facility takes steel and aluminum mixed together, then just fill empty beer cans with them.
    I won't do the filling,but I can help with emptying the cans.

    Just throw them in the recycling dumpster. It's not like you're tossing loaded ammo in there. No one was ever harmed by an emptied steel casing. Well, I guess a hot one down the collar could cause some excitment.

    Is there a local recycle center that buys metals? Depending on how much you shoot, it's a maybe.

    theyre not wrth enough for a trip to the recycle center for money...unless you shoot some big numbers...then youve got enough money that it doesnt matter...the empty casings are totally inert...just throw em in the recycling dumbster and let em go...

    Call your city/county and ask.
