How to Properly Dispose of Empty Shell Casings

Ammunition, Weaponry, Bullet

Empty shell casings are typically made of metal and can usually be recycled. It is important to check with your local recycling center or scrap metal yard to see if they accept shell casings. If they do, make sure to follow any specific guidelines they may have.

If the shell casings are in good condition, they may also have a reuse value. You can consider donating them to a local shooting range or firearms training facility, as they may be able to use them for training or other purposes.

It is important to note that shell casings may be considered hazardous waste if they have been used in the firing of certain types of ammunition. In this case, they should be handled and disposed of properly to ensure safety. Contact your local hazardous waste disposal facility or law enforcement agency for guidance on how to dispose of these shell casings safely.
