Subject: microfiche disposal

Our microfiches are collected separately from any other waste. They are
destroyed using a method least damaging to the environment (something to do
with high-pressure)

What do other libraries do about disposing of microfiche?  We have several
hundred and don't want to feel guilty about tossing them in the trash.
