Re: Shotgun shells
Are you referring to shells that have been used for reloading and are no
longer safe to reload again? See the attached general information
about reloading shells and safety guide on shell reloads. I am no
expert, but I believe there are companies that take spent shells and
reload them. I'm sure a bit of research for sources in your area
would be as easy as contacting a shooting supply company. See

I've been asked by several gun
clubs if used shotgun shells can be recycled after separating the metal
base from the casing that holds the shot. Bases are aluminum or
brass, and cases are HDPE or paper. These "empties"
accumulate in huge numbers at skeet ranges after practice and
competition. Any ideas or suggestions greatly appreciated.
