Guys, how can i dispose away photographs properly? I got a stack of photo albums which i want to dispose it away.. I was told photographs cannot be burned cos will have toxic fumes.. So any ways to destroy it other than cutting it into pieces?

how to burn trash in Singapore? the smoke and smell will bring the firebusters to your doorstep in no time.

if u shred/cut/dump it , it will ultimately end up in the incinerators just like any garbage.

Disposal of househould items containing hazardous substances are not very well controlled in Singapore. We don't even have proper disposal channel (for households) for batteries, mercury containing fluorescent bulbs, etc...

I think hazardous waste is exported overseas, as we don't have enough land for landfills. Don't think they're burned though.

I guess privacy is a concern here.

A simple way is to just dip them in some household bleach and the pictures fade away immediately.

Yes. I am sorry to hear that Singapore now want to have green housing, green condo, but no hazardous refusal for battery.
