You Have Selected Ammunition

Only buy the amount of ammunition you know you will use. Keeping it in your home can be a danger to you and your family. Disposing of ammunition in your regular trash poses a grave danger to solid waste handlers. If you have explosive materials, including ammunition, do not bring them to a Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off Facility. Call your local law enforcement agency for details on proper disposal or to see if they accept unused ammunition.
