English term or phrase: circular file
This book will show the how, what, and where of marketing to women. It will demonstrate why the traditional approaches for reaching women must be:
1. dragged into the Recycle Bin (today's computer metaphor of choice) or
2. tossed into the Circular File (the quaint paper-based metaphor of my youth)

Kalo komputer kita udah kepenuhan file, biasanya kan kita bilang, "Di-drag aja ke Recycle Bin!"
Lha kalo sistemnya manual gimana? Apa istilah yang tepat untuk "circular file"? Kalau seperti ini gimana (karangan saya sendiri sih :-) :

- "Lempar aja ke keranjang sampah!"
- "Lempar aja ke mesin penghancur kertas!"

Trims atas masukannya! :-)

keranjang sampah
Explanation:
Circular File itu slang buat tong sampah. Mesin penghancur kertas kayaknya terlalu modern, dan kontras antara zaman dahulu dan zaman modern dengan Recycle Bin terasa hilang.

Circular file
Tong sampah


Explanation:
Kalau saya lebih suka untuk membiarkan 'recycle bin' tetap dalam Bahasa Inggris karena apabila diterjemahkan gregetnya akan hilang karena menurut saya yang paling penting adalah maksud sebenarnya dari tulisan tersebut sampai ke pembaca, selain itu 'recycle bin' sudah merupakan istilah inggris yang hampir semua orang yang pernah memakai komputer sudah tahu.
Kalo saya sich mungkin menerjemahkannya seperti ini:

'Kirim aja ke Recycle Bin'
'Buang aja ke tong sampah'

Ya, tapi semua sich terserah Elka :)
