Leftover Shabbos Candles

whats the proper way to dispose of Shabbos candle left over wax? Can it be thrown away or burnt? Just like Chanuchah candles or oil?


Unlike Chanuka candles and oil which are set aside for a mitzvah which is forbidden to benefit from in other ways, Shabbos candles have no such restriction as they are intended to benefit from. Hence they may be used or disposed of as one wishes. When disposed they should ideally be wrapped in a bag, as to treat with respect something used for a mitzvah.
