Do NOT put them in recycle, as those things are seen by humans on the sort line.
In regular trash they go from your trash can to the truck and then to the dump, where they are dumped into a giant hole and covered up.
However, while they are sitting in your garbage can they are fair game. Most people are looking for cans but might see important stuff.
You can put them in a heavy bag and soak them, if you have a place to do that. The water will make most of the ink unreadable. Once they dry out then put them in the trash.
You can even buy a cheap shred machine and do a few at a time while you watch TV ??
