For those who, try as they might, never get the crumpled up ball of paper into the waste-basket.

A waste-paper basket with attached vacuum that tractors your crumpled paper into the bin from a radius around the bin.

Look like a pro with a no-look throw into the suck-o-throw on the far side of the office.

       "Have you been loitering by the suck-o-throw again with crumpled up balls, or are you just glad to see me?"

       Two important product specifications for the Deluxe Upgrade Suck-O-Throw:   

       1) The vacuum motor must be absolutely silent so that others in the room will not be aware when it is activated; and 2) The device should be equipped with an easily pocketed remote control that allows the owner to imperceptibly turn the unit on and off at will.   

       These two additional features will make the owner look like a pro against all unsuspecting challengers.

       This has a very bedknobs and broomstix feel to it. Can see a trail of "important" documents all taking the plunge as my back is turned. Which wouldn't really be bad. +

       This has applications to bowling as well (may have to use fans instead of sucking, though)
