    I have a couple of sets that can't be saved, can I put them in the recycle bin? Or do I have to trash them?

    Why would put them in a recycle bin?
  3. Because they're either steel or nickel and scrap metal is relatively valuable these days.

    It's pretty likely that if you toss them, they'll get sucked out of the trash by magnet and recycled in most areas. My GF toured a landfill processing center as part of her job at a construction company a year or two ago, and said that it's amazing how much sorting and recycling they do now.
