    I use one of the plastic boxes that the pins originally came in. When it's full I tape it closed.

    I put old needles in pill bottles. I wrap old rotary blades with duct tape.

    I use an oud pill bottle with a label that says "Dead Needles" on it. I put used rotary blades between to pieces of cardboard and tape it.

    I wrap mine in a small piece of duct tape and put it in the trash. I don't go through many needles so this is just easier.

    I use a butter/margarine container. I've poked a small hole in the top so I can put needles in it easily. My old rotary blades also are disposed of in the same container. It's big enough that it lasts a long time, and always has a lid on it. I don't have to spend time taping rotary blades to cardboard.

    I right "Bad" on my blades with a Sharpie and just put them back in the case under the good ones. I put a round piece of colored template between the bad's and the goods.
