Is it alright to throw away old reloaded ammunition into the trash?

Cleaning out my Uncles house we found a lot of old reloaded shotgun and .38 ammo that none of us want to try shooting. Can we throw it out in the dumpster? It is really hot here these days and the dumpster guys use a smasher on the trash so I don’t want this stuff somehow going off.

I think you’ve got your answer already, NO not a good idea. As others have suggested, call the PD, Sheriff, or FD. Why wouldn’t you want to shoot it? That is assuming you shoot. As long as it’s been stored in a cool dry place it should be fine. I have fired rounds that were almost 100 years old without incident.
