What’s the best way to dispose of kitchen knives?

The city of Lawrence recommends you dispose of all sharp materials in a safe manner. Megan Gilliland, communications manager, said the recommended method of disposal for sharp objects, such as needles or knives, is to place items in a puncture-proof container and secure the lid with duct tape. Examples of puncture-proof containers are detergent bottles or coffee cans. Label the container “sharps” and place at the curb on your normal trash day.
