Make sure you remove the windows from envelopes or they drive you mad when you use the compost as you have to remove the strips as they don't rot.
Buy yourself a robust paper shredder. The cheap ones from supermarkets last very little time if you use them a lot. I don't shred shiny paper - that goes for recycling. Sheets or large pieces of cardboard - without the sticky tape - can go straight in the heap, no need to shred it.
Also don't put avocado stones or peach stones in the compost heap; they never rot down.
