How to dispose of old knives?

Reston | Dec 5, 2012 11:21 AM

I'm getting some new knives for Christmas (I hope!), and I'd like to toss the old ones. The old knives are not really worth passing on to anyone, since they're very dull, and the wooden handles are no longer securely attached (note to self... don't put wood in dishwasher).

I'm reluctant to put them in the trash for fear of someone, or animal, accidentally cutting themselves. Would it be ok to put them in a box, and then seal the box before putting them in the trash?

Any ideas?
