  I collect it in cardboard boxes. (You need to make sure any cracks
  in the bottom are securely taped up before pouring in the wax.)
  When a box is full it makes a rather satisfyingly solid cube, which
  goes out with the general garbage. With smaller boxes and a centrally
  dangled string you can make candles, but they don't work very well.

  Does anyone know how to make good candles from thrown out wax
  without too much time and effort?
