As kitchen knives can pose a significant risk when not disposed of properly, Blackmoor Home has shared this guide for their safe disposal.
It is crucial to wrap the entire blade and the tip of the knife heavily with cardboard, ensuring that no part of the blade is sticking out. Fold a strong piece of cardboard in half with the blade secured on the inside of the fold.
Secure this with strong tape to ensure that the blade stays well wrapped. For further safety, place the wrapped blade into a padded envelope, bubble wrap or plastic box – tape it all again, before labelling it “Caution Sharp Blade”. It can then be placed into the non-recyclable waste bin, along with your other rubbish.
Alternatively, if the knife is made wholly out of metal it can be recycled as scrap metal at your local waste disposal centre, although we would recommend blunting the blade before doing so.
If the knives are still usable and in good condition, you may be able to donate them to a local charity shop or food bank, although check with them before hand as they may have policies not to handle knives.
"Disposing of kitchen knives should be taken seriously to ensure the safety of oneself and others. By taking the necessary precautions, we can prevent unnecessary injuries and maintain a safe and healthy environment for all." Simon Parker, Marketing Manager, Blackmoor Home
