An extension on the mailbox with a conveyor attachment zips your mail along, electronically scanning for key phrases such as "You may already be a winner!"; "Time dated material enclosed"; or "To the Folks At:". A keypad allows the user to program additional phrases of their choice. Once an offending
missive has been identified, a slot opens to a shredder/compressor that adds water and re-forms the slurry into a shape of your choice. Need fresh insulation for your home? How about a log for the fire? The possibilities are endless.
