What do you do with OEM keys and pins? : Locksmith

I’ve just started dabbling in locksmithing- mostly repinning and replacing locks for friends and family members. But I was just wondering what professional locksmiths do with the keys and pins that come with locks you install/repin. I’ve started a scrap brass bucket that I dump the key pins in along with the chips from cutting keys. Is there any point in keeping the original key with the brand logo on it or trying to reuse the pins later down the road? Obviously I reuse the key pins in the same lock if the cut depth is the same on the existing key (unless they’re the double-sided ones that come in kwiksets).
