They are safe to throw in the regular trash. Or do with them what you do with your fired cases. If you reload you can pull the bullets and reload. I assume you tried a second strike?

If they are factory, get the lot # and contact the manufacturer (you may get a free box for your trouble).

If they are reloads, the primers may have been contaminated.

If the reloads are from someone else (something I don't advise), chalk it up as lesson learned.

If you were shooting at a range, most ranges have a dud box for faulty ammo. That would be the safest way to dispose of the rounds. Do not throw them in the trash. I have had misfires in the past only to have them fire on subsequent attempts.

Try them again. If they still do not fire, give them to a reloading buddy. The bullet can easily be pulled, powder dumped (on the lawn. Yes it is good for the grass), primer punched out and loaded again
