Re: burning paper/receipts

I actually thought I was super careful, however one time I forgot to put a sticker on my rubbish bag and the gemeinde found out it was mine based on some scrap of paper they must have found. Either that or the empty bottles of Branston Pickle, HP sauce and Wispa bar wrappers could also have blown my cover.. what with me being the only Brit in the village (I think)

Re: burning paper/receipts

We have a member here who wants to slaughter a cow in her garage. I guess she wouldn't mind to burn your papers there as well.

Re: burning paper/receipts

I put all my unwanted papers in an old suitcase and check it in at Terminal 5 of Heathrow. It's the surest way to know that they'll vanish and never be seen again.

That depends on where you live. We can put shredded paper in clear plastic bags, and it is taken away. You can buy the bags from the gemeinde, or use your own (must be clear).
you can also recycle them at confetti at the next fasnacht.

Capable shredders are not only expensive but you also cannot use the free waste paper disposal.
You can here, I see it all the time.
