Question:

Should reform ‘siddurim’ be put in shaimos or burned?

Answer:

The siddurim should be put into shaimos, and not burned. See the following post  https://dinonline.org/2017/11/20/disposal-of-messianic-prayerbook/  regarding Messianic prayer books. Messianic prayer books contain outright clear heresy and apikorsus, therefore they should be burned, however the siddurim of the Reform, although I have never read one, it is unclear that they do contain outright heresy, therefore we can’t say that they are considered a “sefer shkosvo min”.  (Although the person who put out the siddur might be considered an apikorus, but regarding the siddur it wouldn’t be considered “kosvo min”).  See Igros Moshe Y:D 1-172.
