Can old copies of the Holy Quran be burnt and its ashes be buried?


Can old copies of the Holy Quran be burnt and its ashes be buried? If this is not correct then what is the proper procedure of getting rid of old copies of the Holy Quran?

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

The pages should be wrapped up/covered in something to protect it and buried in a place where people’s feet will not trample upon. Burning the old pages of the Holy Quran must be avoided.
