    Default how do you dispose of razor blades?

    Its not something you just throw in the regular household trash is it? Are there special drop off or collection points for hazardous material like this? I think batteries may be the only waste similar in potential harm to others or the environment which I can think of.

    i throw them in the trash. i've probably thrown batteries away too, but normally i just don't do anything with them.

    i have no idea what one should do.

    You can actually eat them, stomach acids are strong enough for you to digest them completely

    In the house I grew up in with my Dad, he taught me that there was a slot in the center back of the bathroom mirror medicine cabinet. The point of it was do throw away used razor blades. Whenever he threw one away there was the distinct sound of metal hitting a large pile of other metal objects, so it has been used for quite some time. Apparently this is a staple of old homes (our home was over 100 years old when we lived in it). If you have a mirror medicine cabinet check to see if it has one of these slots on the back wall of it. If there is one, the purpose of it is to throw away razor blades.

    Eh...there isn't really a proper disposal for this where I live as far as I know. If you want to be kind to the garbage man, I'd get an old tin of some kind (ex: coffee tin) and throw your blades in there. Label the tin "sharps." When the tin is full, make sure the lid is sealed tightly (perhaps tape it on) and throw it out in the regular trash.

    That seems really odd. You mean somewhere in your house was a collection of thousands of used razor blades?

    Well my father sold the house in 2013, but yes. The drop inside the wall between the sheetrock studs and wood so they're never going to be touched or interacted with unless someone wants to tare apart the wall between the bathroom and what was the computer room. I suspect that wall is going to stay intact for quite some time, or until the house crumbles or burns down or something.

    Heh. I'll shake hands with you on this one, @Hard. I remember the same thing.

    Nowadays, though, I sport a full beard and mustache, and only shave a bit to even up the bottom of the beard: and at that, with a disposable razor (Bic or similar).

    So I'll bow to your superior experience in this matter.

    My dad's family had that arrangement when he was a kid.
