Keys

A small piece of shaped metal with incisions cut to fit the wards of a particular lock, and that is inserted into a lock and turned to open or close it.

Electronic key fobs are e-waste. Plastic covered keys are trash. Collect metal keys for scrap metal drop-off. Consider reuse as ornaments or weights for curtains/drapes.
