Safe knife disposal - getting rid of old knives

Anyone have any tips on disposing of old knives? I have some old dull kitchen type knives I want to get rid of, but I'm not sure of the safest way to do it.

completely dull the cutting edges and tips, either with sandpaper or a hammer, then put in trashcan.

Then maybe if you have some cardboard laying around, wrap a section of cardboard around the blade then tape it up. I guess similar to the way bigger kitchen knives are packaged.

go to a local shipping place, buy a 3 inch by x ( where x is the length of the blade plus a couple of inches ) piece of styrofoam board, slide the knife in the middle of the styrofoam, and tape it into it. Thats how we always disposed of razors, knives would work similarly well.

Know anybody that works at a hospital? Sharps boxes all over the place that get incinerated.

I'm sure some duct tape alone would be enough to make it safe in the trash bag.

Sharpen the knife and keep using it? Seriously, is the knife THAT bad that it should be thrown out?

I disagree, Good Will is not the place to dump your old, useless, shit. If you do this, atleast sharpen the knives beforehand.
