    Personally I just rip up mine and put them in the wheelie bin, who is going to rummage through chicken bones, teabags and other stinking filth to try and read soggy bits of paper?

    For secure data destruction you must;

    1) Obscure the text with the roller stamp, then
    2) Shred the paper with a cross cut shredder, then
    3) Burn the shredded paper in a metal bin, and finally
    4) Divide the ashes evenly, flushing half down the toilet, while the other half goes into the rubbish along with the rotten teabags.

    5) Entrust your copy to Swiss Post: by the time it is delivered it will be more shredded than you'd believe and as a further layer of security it will be in transit longer than the Voyager
    6) Run it through MicroSoft's spell checker.

    Glad I don't work in the recycling center in your neighbourhood.

    I don't understand why anyone would want to go through your rubbish just in case they might find something interesting. Besides, SWMBO bought a shredder and if anyone can put all those shredded bits and pieces together then they deserve to be able to read them. But then I don't think that any of our correspondence and other private papers would be of interest to anyone, anyway, so I really can't imagine anyone going through our rubbish, even though our papers may be in the relatively clean recycle bin. I think that it's more trouble than it's worth. So no. I'm not worried about someone seeing something that we don't want them to see. I think the whole idea is ridiculous.

    LOL.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Well, I would have given my honest opinion on the product if I'd ever used one.

    Identity theft is a lucrative business. Although these days phishing emails are easier than digging through trash cans... but it's easy to forget that low-tech solutions work well, especially when many people forget they exist
