Unusable holy books can't just be thrown in the garbage

Pages with the name of G-d (Hashem) on them
can't just be thrown out with your regular paper trash.

These pages are called Shaimos.


The following items must be treated as Shaimos.

This means they have to be buried in a Jewish cemetery.


The following items are to be recycled or double bagged
but do not need to be placed in Shaimos


The following items may be thrown away in a single bag in the regular trash

If you have any questions please contact your rabbi
before dumping unnecessary materials in Shaimos.

The information on this page is based
