Question:

If one eats a banana on Shabbos and the peel remains in his hand, with no edible remnants, is it muktzah?

What about a candy wrapper, once the candy has been removed?

Or grapes, where you ate them and only the stem is left?

Since it is still in your hand, can you take it to the garbage, or do you need to drop it immediately? If one put in on the table, should one refrain from handling it further?

Answer:

See sources.
