Disposing nails in the bin

Q: If one is cutting one's nails, what is the ruling on placing them in the bin and if one recites the Basmalah before cutting nails directly with a bin below, does this entail sin?

A: The nails should be buried. They should not be thrown into the bin. Do not take the name of Allah Ta'ala near filth.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
