no, i never do. it's dirty wax. if i'm out of wax, i'll wait until i can buy some more or pay a shop to do it. i wouldn't recycle it even if i was desperate.
Unless you wax a dirty board, it's not dirty. It's the same wax that was previously attached to your brick. The only difference is that it has been heated to its melting point and then cooled back down to it's solid state. (Which is how they mold the wax into a neat little brick shape with a nice designer logo on it).
I recycled my wax until I accidentally tipped the container I was saving it in and it all fall onto the floor and mixed with some dryer lint. THAT wax... is now dirty.
I was even recycling waxes of different temperature ranges as an experiment in hopes of combining them all into a 'homemade' all temperature wax. That experiment will have to wait.
The wax you scrape should be clean if you did your job cleaning the base before starting.That said if you way overheat the wax the first time around I would'nt use it more than once. I did that by mistake and it did'nt seem to last at all.
why would you need to clean your base if it all comes off when you wax? you guys must ride some super clean snow or something cause i get all kinds of dirt, sap, and crap from the snow. do a hot wax and scrape, and it all comes off. no need to pay extra and waste time using base cleaners that dry out your base.
