You can reuse copper washers if they are not too damaged.

Smooth both sides by rubbing on fine emery/sand paper then anneal (softens the copper previously work hardened during the squeeze) by heating to cherry red and allowing to cool. Cooling by dropping into water prevents some of the black discolouration, but its of no real consequence.

Good demo of effects of annealing  Jules
