Don't throw them away. The insurance won't be cancelled until the plates are handed in so unless you want to pay insurance for a car you no longer own this is a really bad idea.
The buyer can hand the plates in when he registers the car in Vaud and they will be returned to Geneva.
So just to close this out I went down to the Services des Automobiles in Geneva today and they said I had to bring the plates back to them myself, and that the Services des Automobiles in Vaud couldn't do it. They do at least have a drop box outside though, so I can drop them off outside of their opening hours.

That's BS, as I've done it that way several times before when I moved cantons, and my daughter did it last month.

Also, you can mail them in, which I do several times a year.

I assume the GE guys just cover their asses in case the VD guys, for some weird and strange reason, do not play along.

So we completed the sale today and in the Nyon Services des Autos in Vaud they wouldn't take my Geneva plates, so both ends of the chain wouldn't do it.

There are lots of threads on selling/buying cars privately, but none I could find which cover the logistics of doing it between cantons when the buyer doesn't already have their own plates to use. In general telling people to use search never adds much to a thread.
