Not relevant to this particular instance, but for domestic disks I keep
them (along with old credit cards, memory sticks etc) until I have the
garden incinerator going.  With a good bright red firebed the disks
don't last long - some run out of the bottom as liquid aluminium.  I'm
pretty certain even MI5/NSA won't get much off congealed Al!
