How to dispose of pins and needles safely

While walking barefoot in the yard as a child I stepped on a pin. when I removed the pin from my heel a part broke off and stayed in my foot causing me great discomfort when I walked until it was removed. I always remember that incident when its time to replace blunt needles on my sewing machine ( needles should be replaced after 8 hours of sewing) or when I find a pin is bent or broken.
the safest way to dispose of pins and needles I find is to wrap them up in masking tape before placing them in the garbage bin.
Have a lovely weekend.
