Does anyone know the best way to dispose of Kitchen butcher knives. I have a lot of old knives that are no longer useful.

Most any thrift store will be glad to take your knives. Barb
have you thought about using them in a garden as markers ? Paint the handles then the name of the plant !
That may be too dangerouse if you have kids who might pull them up & get hurt...
I'd wrap the blades in masking tape on the cutting edges, then put into cardboard that has been folded in half and tape closed - whether intended for the dump or donation.
Mark in large indelible black ink on the outside "sharp knife".
You don't want anyone visiting the dump to get cut.
I say this because where I live has a dump the size of a huge swimming pool and I have seen people going through it when we've dropped off trash.
I have used old knives for:
1. Taken steak knives to work for others to use
2. Letter/package openers
3. Scraping crud off of grill
