I do big tiding of my flat and I found out, that lot of my waste consists from boxes with my addresses and receipts from online store deliveries. What is the most easiest and also most efficient way to discard such type of waste at home?
- Shred the copies with a cross-cut shredder or if the volume is large enough you could pay an organization to dispose of them for you. If you're really paranoid you can take your shreddings and mix them up across multiple recycling bags and dispose of them in different areas.
- Burn them (assuming that you have a facility to safely do that and you're not burning anything harmful to you or the environment such as plastic)
- Use software such as DBAN or similar alternative that will overwrite your data with multiple passes to ensure it cannot be recovered
If data is stored on an SSD note that the destruction process may differ and you'll want to ensure your product has a Secure SSD Erase feature
You may also choose to open up the disks and physically destroy them for an added layer of protection
