At some point in time, you just gotta let go. I hate to throw any scrap away, believing that there will always be a use for it somewhere. And, since I turn pens, it pretty easy to look at a small piece and say, “that’ll make a nice pen.” But, I’ve got more pen blanks than I can use for quite some time now, and some scraps have collected so much dust that I can’t remember why I kept them.

So, I’m starting to transfer some scraps to the burn pile so that I can make room for more.

To answer your question, you throw it away when you’ve got nowhere to put it.
