Throwing papers with Islamic words in the bin

Q: The food products that I buy from the market contains a halaal seal where the word halaal is written in Arabic. Sometimes the word ‘Islam’ is written. Can I put these packets in the dustbin after writing over these words with a marker?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
