Written Divine Names
There are 2 common terms used for sacred writings which need disposal, one is G'nizah which means to hide or to bury, the other term is Shaimos, which means names. Only papers or writings which contain verses from the Torah (written and Oral) or that have the sacred names of Hashem need to be disposed of by burial in a special area designated for this purpose. Other writings that are not holy in any way may be disposed of in any manner; i.e. secular newspapers, magazines, grocery lists, advertisements, penmanship practices, written in hebrew etc.
