If your city specifies that they collect scrap metal with their curbside recycling, you can toss them in there! Most, however, collect scrap metal separately.
Collect your blades in a blade bank made from an aluminum can or other small container. Be sure it is clearly labelled and keep it away from children and pets.
When the can is close to full, tape the opening to seal it and drop it off at your local scrap metal collection site for recycling.
*Life span will vary based on frequency of use, storage conditions, length of hair, etc.
