Dear identity thieves, get bent.
The bucket you see is an eighteen liter pail that I had crammed with bills and bank statements and random junk from the government. I soak the entire mess in water until it becomes an unrecognizable pulp and then throw it into the compost pile where it will become a source of carbon for the piles digestive process. The secondary benefit of this slurry is that it adds extra moisture to our unwrapped pile that I don't want to fully dry out - and in the roofs high heat, high wind microclimate that is pretty likely without additional water.
