Disposing of a mezuzah?

When I graduated from grad school, my synagogue sent me a mezuzah as kind of a “congrats, welcome to the real world” gift. It was a super thoughtful thing to do, but the mezuzah itself was pretty basic—very simple, and with a stick-on adhesive. It’s been almost 10 years and since then I’ve moved, gotten married, and gotten several much nicer mezuzahs. Is there a way for me to properly dispose of the old one? I’ve been carrying it from apartment to apartment because it feels wrong to just trash it, but there’s no way I’m hanging it up again for a couple of reasons.
