Recycle, Burn or File
« on: December 18, 2021, 10:08 »
Hours of endless fun.   ::)

It involves going over the never ending paperwork you've been sent.  Anything without personal information goes in the recycle pile, as do all the envelopes - unless written on. Then the burn pile, this consists of any personal info or names and addresses which could be 'useful' to someone. And finally the file pile for paperwork you actual want or need.  It's best played on a large dining room table  :nowink:

Trouble is I seem to get so much mail, most of it only fit for the recycle bin  ::)
Postman puts all the non-addressed adverts on the bottom of the pile, so it's easier for me to put them in the recycling bin  :lol:

My equivalent piles would be recycle, shred then recycle, scan & store.

Scan & store items are usually shredded then recycled.

A small amount is filed as paper, an even smaller amount is in the safe deposit box at the bank (birth certificates, deed to house, title to car, etc.)

Our local paper recycling does accept paper shreds (I have one of those fine cross-cut types).  They also have, 4 times a year, a truck with a secure document shredder on board, shredding is free up to 2 boxes each time.

Mrs. Subversive also has her own pile, called "straight from mail box to trash can"

What is shredded goes in the compost bin. Have eventually reached an age where there's not a lifetime of work/house to be kept.

Name and first part of address, then postcode, get blotted out with biro scribble.   Really sensitive stuff gets torn to the stuff, then shredded.   Shredded here has to go with household waste !!!  Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

Well I've played for 2 hours and now I'm knackered. I admit to being a little behind and the business does generate a bit (or at least it used to). I'm working my way down 3 x 65l totecrates where I've been slinging to sort later. :blush: I've already filled 3 shopping bags just with envelopes  :ohmy: and I'm only 1 crate in.

Fine shreds in the compost is a good idea! I'll give that a try.

I just love cutting up the cardboard packaging from tea, cakes etc., and always keep a pile handy for lists, after which they go in the recycle-carrier bag...

We always get loads of stuff from Scotts of Stow, and Coopers of Stortford, (the latter won't get anything from me any more - they sold me a load of duff socks, and after two messages, ignored the issue), but we try and use any old envelopes when we can!

And birthday cards to each other, etc., get saved and reused every year, with strange names written on countless sticky labels, and lots of arrows and crossings out! It's always nice to see the old cards from the cats and the dog too, the paw prints and licks are masterpieces!
