Quick and easy solution if you don't have a shredder - tear off all identifying data and holding it in the palm of your hand, run warm water over it, smush your hand into a fist - instant papier-mache. Most of the inks will run but even if they don't, the paper disintegrates, toss the squeezed ball into the trash. Some of the coated papers won't disintegrate so those I shred.
A reminder, when you are tearing the address off catalogues, don't forget the order form inside - it always has your name and address. I never put my name and address in the trash, even on junk mail.
One thing not a real issue here, aside from not enouph credit for anyone to get a card or anything in my name is the fact we dont have trash pickup so all our trash gets burned anyway and if they are going through our burn pile they just might get in between me and that raccoon I was trying to shoot.
Great tip, RH!! I'll share that with my apartment-dwelling friends.
I'm fortunate enough to have a wood stove, so (like mm), I burn everything.
Thanks, good tips.
No shredder here just a woodstove
