Waste Paper Basket

The waste basket has some pieces of paper in it, but they say nothing.  They appear to be just scraps not written on at all, but you are suspicious of the basket.  Do you move it? Or do you check out the desk again or the closet? There also appears to be a straw in the basket. The straw is tinted reddish in color, and thre is a faint odor of cranberries to it.
