burning paper instead of shredding
I still have alot of paper to shred. But I almost killed my shredder, even though I do lubricate it with fine machine oil as per the instructions. My husband fixed it, but I don't know if the shredder will handle all the paper I have. I was wondering about burning the paper in my chiminea, perhaps with some twigs or newspaper logs. I realize it won't be useful as a mulch, but do any of you do that, and just add the ash to your pile. I imagine it would just be a tiny amount of final product. Any thoughts?
