'Waste yarn' is just leftover yarn, or any yarn that's different than what you're knitting the item with. It's used as a stitch holder, which you can also use but that may not be as flexible. I use a spare circular needle, the size doesn't matter as long as it's the same or smaller than the one you're using.
