Burn it and bury the ashes in a place where no one will walk on it, would be my guess.

What exactly qualifies as a place "no one will walk on it"?
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

A place that people are sure to never walk, like under a bush, or some shrub.

Just make sure you warn UN outposts in Orthodox countries before you put the burning on youtube.
