Anyone know how I'm supposed to get rid of unused airbag units?

I made a mess of removing the passenger side one so its in no condition to sell unfortunately.

Can I just take it to the local tip for them to deal with?

Seriously... opportunities like this don't present themselves very often!

I think you know what you need to do. Yes

As long as you don't mind not having an anus any more of course.

I'd take them to the skip and ask them what to do with it. Then when they say they won't take it, just throw it in the hopper when they're not looking.

EDIT: or the used oil container, that could be fun

Firstly, how did you make a mess of removing it??

1. Slacken release lever lock bolt
2. Pull release lever and lift airbag out

Anyway, you're supposed to discharge them and then they can go in any bin.

I thought it was held in by a bolt that's near the release lever, I took that out and then tried to lever out the airbag but that just resulted in the top cover coming away.

Yes, easy once I found the correct lever, but nevermind!

obv rig it up to something fun. My ideal situation would be next doors cat that keeps p*ssing on my car. Rig it up with a camera and sensor, then when the cat walks over it.. BOOM
then dispose of in bin for person you dont like down the street so if it gets found they will think they killed the cat

Noticed I had a old steering wheel in garage just now so I took out the airbag and solder a wire on the end of each of the two prongs, put it rojnd the garage and joined on a large langur of wire, joined to battery, BOOM, then 15 seconds later THUD and it landed, shut that mist if gone some distance in air, thing is it landed next to where it went up.
I would not want that thing going off in my face, it was hot and loud as f*ck and the power behind it was immense.
