What to do when we need to burn or dispose of Buddhist objects (with respect)?

@Jereme asked about this.
Here is Venerable Ru De talking about this topic (Starting from the 1min 50s mark):

若有法寶如佛像、經書、唐卡、等,因為汙損或其他原因,不得已,必須銷毀,為恭敬故,欲焚毀前,可唸以下之咒語及偈子,並觀想佛菩薩自佛像中離開回到佛國土去。
I think the crux is to respectfully do the action and visualise the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas going back to their realm

咒語:唵 班紮 北 嘎 (瑪) 啊 札 瑪 吽 (共9或10字 可唸3遍或7遍或21遍)

偈子:尊已成辦眾生利,賜予相順諸悉地;現雖已至佛境地,祈願再度降來臨。(或唸白話如下:您成辦一切有情事業、並賜予相同之成就、雖然現在到佛的境地、祈求您能再降臨此處)

And then reciting the above mantra.
