When I picked up my regulator from service; they included a baggie with all the old parts.
Most everything looked good with a tiny bit of dirt on the diaphragm and a couple small o-rings.
Everything looked pretty good- I suppose they give you back your parts to prove they've been replaced, not for me to keep as spares-
If I had an issue, I don't think I'd pull out anything from that bag except maybe a hose o-ring for my save a dive kit?

What do you all do with it? Keep it as proof if you ever need to send it in to the manufacturer, throw it all away, keep some of it?

I'm a terrible example, but I also work on/rebuild/build from scratch most of my own gear. If you DIY, some bits may be worth setting aside and checking for serviceability, but if you're not going to be DIY'ing stuff just toss it as @Marie13 does. You are correct that they return the old parts as proof of work/replacement.

Respectfully,

James

Throw away and dispose of properly.
