    Disposing of Old Cutting Blades

    I have a box of old cutting blades and honestly don't know how to dispose of them. With the strict recycling we have to do I just kept putting off throwing them away. Ashamed to say it's all the cutting blades them from my Craft Robo, original Cameo and Cameo 3.

    Any ideas please?????

    Only thing I can suggest is to wrap them in sheets of newspaper - very thickly - and put in general rubbish. you could see if anybody needs the coloured caps though.

    I tape all broken used blades to thick cardboard- several sheets on both sides or put them in any glass container with a screw top like a milk chocolate bottle. All goes in the recyclable bin.

    Yes, we put the blade inside a glass jar and then we have to separate our glass/paper/cardboard/plastic and dispose of them separately from the regular garbage...then our trash Company picks that up separately from the regular garbage to go to a recycle plant.

    Thanks Yiayia for replying and suggestions. I don't have any of the caps as they went with my Robo when I sold it. I do have some spindles and quite a few ratchet blades and auto blades. A premier blade which stopped cutting after a few uses, so will not buy them again. So much for a longer life.

    Thanks Petrina. Our local councils are in charge of refuse and can be 'jobs worth' about it.

    We put all of ours in the same bin and the council sort it out but quite often people are fined if they put the wrong things in the bin

    That is a wonderful idea. I will take my future ones to my Dr. visits. Thank you for sharing.
