  • I have a plastic bag with shotgun shells that have not been fired. They were in the bed of my truck in the elements for probably

    I have a plastic bag with shotgun shells that have not been fired. They were in the bed of my truck in the elements for probably 2 years. Are they safe to dispose of in a garbage can? If not how can I dispose of them safely?

    Depending on how many you have and how much time you have, the BEST way I can think of is this:

    Cut the TOP of the shell off and pour out all of the beads, wadding and gunpowder. I would pour the Gunpowder into a container by itself and either safely burn it or dilute it with water so it can't ignite.
