    As far I can tell, yes it is. Your intention is pure. Second you are not keeping Allah's name on the notebook or the paper and then throwing it away, which would be wrong.

    Assalamu alaykum,

    The intention is the most important thing. It is good to dispose of such things in a respectful way. You can cut through them or shred them so that they are no more. The best of such ways would be those that are sanctioned in the Quran and Ahadith.

    Shredding. This may be the easiest way nowadays. There are machines into which one inserts papers and they shred them into tiny pieces, so that they are no longer regarded as words of the Qur’aan or even legible letters. This is clean and safe and does not involve a lot of effort, as is the case with burning or burying.

    Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

    No one among the Muslims doubts that the Muslim must respect and venerate the Holy Qur’aan and prevent it from being exposed to mishandling. These worn out pages of the Mus-haf which cannot be used for reading may then be dealt with in one of two ways:

    (i) They may be buried in a clean, pure place where they will not be subject to mishandling in the future, to the best of one’s knowledge.

    (ii) They may be burned. Burning them is permissible and there is nothing wrong with it. When the Qur’aan was consolidated in the dialect of Quraysh at the time of ‘Uthmaan (may Allaah be pleased with him), the Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with them) burned all other copies. This indicates that it is permissible to burn the Mus-haf that can no longer be made use of.

    But I think that if it is burned then it must be done thoroughly until there is nothing left but ashes, because when printed material is burned, some letters may still be visible after burning, so it is necessary to do it thoroughly until it has turned to ashes.

    If it is shredded, this is a third way, but it is difficult, because shredding must be done to all the words and letters, and this is difficult unless one has a machine that can shred it very finely so that no shape of a letter is left. This is a third way, and it is permissible. End quote.
