If you've got a safety razor, you need a blade bank. Why you ask?
Disposing of used blades properly can be tricky. While they are recyclable, due to how sharp they are, they cannot be recycled in your curb-side pickup. Scrap metal places are happy to take them, but this is obviously not the most convenient.
This blade bank is a sure fire way to not only store your blades safely as it's one solid piece of stainless steel (no little fingers finding their way in here!) it's also a convenient way to ensure your blades are recycled.
Once full with roughly 100 blades, you can send it directly to well kept via mail and they will send you a new one!
Their mailing address is: 104-1515 Barrow Street, North Vancouver, V7J 1B7
Well kept will ensure the blades are properly recycled. Don't you just love a closed loop system? We sure do.
