I would just keep then in a safe place untill they expire.  Once they expire they will turn off and you can safely toss them into a garbage can or electronics recycling location.  If this is not possible you can probably physically destoy them in an electronics shreader.  I am not aware of any way to deactivate them.

We are replacing around 5,000 tokens it is not feasible to store all of these until they expire some don't expire for 4 years.  There is no way to render the tokens unusable?

I would contact RSA for that. They offer a "safe token disposal process" for recycling expired tokens, but I could not see anything for still valid ones. At the amount of 5000 I would not consider anything else but professional service, including a large volume electronics shredder company.
