Put your old hooks in a old plastic drinks bottle,and cut your old line in to small pieces so it does'nt get tangled with anything:thumbs::thumbs:.

i have 4yrs worth of hooks in tub, all my old line goes in the incinerator when i burn my waste paper (can't be recycled due to a silicone coating :[ ), safest way i know, haven't yet decided how to get rid of the old hooks, did consider a small bottle of acid and dropping them in!

you could allways keep saving your hooks till you have enough to wiegh them in(might take you awhile though)

Keep your old hooks for when some snotty kid asks "Any hooks Mr?"

If they ask for a weight tell them to stay there and go fishing somewhere where there's no snotty kids about. Longest wait they'll ever have.
