1.
Stuff that should have been thrown out long ago - but is now so old that it's beginning to have archaeological, historical, or sentimental value.

Alternate form: paleogarbage.
Can I toss this pile of old mail?

No - that stuff brings back fond memories of 2008!

Hey, c'mon - this crap isn't mementos, it's paleotrash!

Something that you don't want to throw out yet, but you know you'll throw out eventually - for example, unread mail, not-quite-empty food containers, etm. Alternative form of prototrash.

Warning: Today's protogarbage is next month's paleogarbage!
Can I throw out this stack of mail?

Not yet - it's not stuff I want to keep, but until I go through it it's still protogarbage.
