    Na they can still read through the black if they want to, plus it's like a flag pointing them to the good stuff.

      I wholeheartedly agree. I recycle more than anyone I know but I shred anything with sensitive information. . . . Identity protection is more important than recycling a piece of paper.

      I was thinking if I was this type of identity crook I'd look for marked out documents.

    Secret Reveal: Shhhhhhh....... . . . . .

    >> "How does your city or town deal with shredded paper in the recycling stream? "

    Oh, they don't want to know how I handle it or private documents my city.
    They don't accept it. There are companies that can come and shred it in front of you and then get processed into something but I don't know what.

    I usually redact With large black sharpie.
    If it only has a few blurbs I'll just pinch & rip the words or numbers out and place in the paper bag strictly for recycling ~ NOT the bag for us/ neighbors/ friends who need newsprint for crafts /dropcloths/'green' wrapping paper.

      The little ripped bits go to undisclosed depositaries or sanitary authorities but never together in the same stream as the host sheet.
    • John D. 4 months ago
      Deja vu but I throw the little bits in the nasty trash with the assumption that they're not that desperate. Lol

    I am up late because we are under only a "possible" tornado warning.
    I looked outside and the rain has just started, I hear the thunder rumbling, it's already raining at a steady rate in just minutes. It's cold now, the temp dropping fast and Very windy, with lots more thunder and lighting too! The upper parts of the State will get ice and snow also. The weatherman just said damaging winds with golfball size hail. It's getting LOUD, its Pounding, better sin off
    It's going to be a long night!

      A good friend of mine is in McAlester, Oklahoma for work this week. He mentioned that the weather was going from nice to not so nice.

      Sin off, sounds like a contest of some sort!

      I hope everything is OK today. I live in Indiana near Lake Michigan. It was in the 40's yesterday and we got lots of rain (melted some of the snow from days before) with high winds and thunderstorms. Today it is supposed to drop in to the 20's and get 4-8 inches of snow. This seems to be the norm now in Indiana.

      I certainly feel for you. I do NOT like the cold and the things that come with it! Feb normally is not too bad, BUT last year we had bad stuff and this year appears to be doing similar things.
