in almost 30 years it is likely that whatever it was is rotted by now no matter what was done to it. :)
however, in the aims of keeping things simple and having me do as little as possible i bury garden scraps at the end of the season and let the soil community figure out what to do with it.
indoors i keep a set of buckets with worms in them to take care of all kitchen scraps and all paper scraps. the most problem i have is any plastic coated items and i hope to put those in the recycling or in the trash. sometimes package designers put layers of plastic between layers of cardstock so i no longer shred cardstock of any kind, it all gets sent to the recycling people instead.
