  1. Great topic! I was happy to see that you covered how to dispose of old Rotary Cutter blades. However, what comes after putting the blades into a box? How do you actually dispose of them in the box? Can they be safely recycled? What is the best way to do so?
    P.S. Quality of video was inferior to your other videos.
    Love your short Quilty shows.

  3. I use the Ice Breakers mints cases when empty for used rotary cutting blades. They are safer and can be disposed of safely. I mark it “Used Blades”.
