It depends on the ammo. For example, certain types of ammo – like tracers – are considered hazardous materials and can’t be simply thrown away. Other types of ammo, like lead rounds, can contaminate the environment if disposed of improperly, so it’s important to check with your local authorities to see what the laws are in your area.

In general, though, it is not illegal to dispose of ammunition as long as you do so in a way that does not pose a threat to public safety. So please consult with your local law enforcement before taking any action and always follow their instructions.

In most cases, you should not dispose of ammo in the trash because it’s a fire hazard. It’s best to take unused or expired ammo to a firearms dealer or gunsmith for proper disposal.

This is a complicated question with a complicated answer. In short, it depends on the jurisdiction you are in and the type of ammo being discarded.

In most cases, it is illegal to discard ammunition in a way that could potentially endanger people or property. For example, if you were to discard live rounds into a public trash can, that would be considered illegal and could result in fines or jail time. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, it is generally legal to discard hunting ammo into a wildlife area or landfill as long as the rounds are properly buried.

If you have any specific questions about discarding ammo in your area, it is best to contact your local law enforcement agency for more information.
