Printed novenas how to dispose?


i have a whole bunch of printed novenas which I used to say when i was going through a hard time… I dont say these anymore…

how do i dispose of these… i would like to as I can always print them again from the internet when i need to…


If they are in good condition, you may wish to leave them in an Adoration Chapel if you have one, for others to take. Or give them to a nursing home perhaps.



What about just getting plastic binder and putting in there for future reference. why waste more paper printing them off later and if you need one quickly at night or to give someone then you have them at hands reach.

I do this with my pope writings. Even though i know i can reprint them, i feel bad for wasting all the paper.
