Taking Care of Sheimos

This is a time of year when people like to take care of their sheimos as part of their Pesach cleaning. Since burying it ourselves is difficult or impossible for most of us, we usually seek out someone else to provide this service.

However, there are those who unfortunately can and do take advantage of our zehirus b’mitzvos and, although they advertise that they bury sheimos k’din and that their services are b’hashgachah, that is not always the case. Sometimes they just (for lack of a better word) dump the sheimos in someone else’s shul or yeshivah and even, chas v’shalom, in the garbage.

Please verify where your sheimos will be buried and who gives the hashgachah. If it smells fishy to you, go elsewhere.
