Shaimos question

I posted another post before about another aspect of geniza and Shaimos, but I was inspired to make another post on this specific question from one of the comments

1) Shalom is one of the names of G-D. Can a piece of paper with the Hebrew or English word of Shalom on it and intended to signify the other meanings of goodbye or peace go in garbage/recycling or must it be placed in geniza?

2) can a piece of paper English Christian spelling of J a ho v a for G-D’s name or Y H W Y meant to go in geniza or can it be recycled/thrown away? I remember reading once that even an entire Christian Old Testament version of the Torah can be thrown away because it’s not really the Torah, but I’m not sure about G-D’s name above written in English/Christian way?
