First, I will be away for a couple of days so I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving in the USA, and a nice end of the week elsewhere.
I wonder why it is that we can’t make a choice of whether or not to receive junk mail. Here is what I picked up for the second time this week.
I have tried to stop the deliveries of these flyers but since they are delivered bulk to the residents we can’t seem to stop them. The number of flyers delivered varies between 20-45 each week, yet there are only 16 apartments in the building, and 3 of those are currently empty.
So while I keep trying to have this stopped, I pick up the flyers twice a week and dispose of them in the recycling bin. As I opened my door I found that not only did we have these flyers cluttering up the building, but this outside.
While I left the books out where a tenant lives, I picked up the books outside empty apartments, these too then ended up in the recycling bin.
I can’t believe how much paper I just tossed today alone. I’m sure most of that paper was virgin paper which makes it even worse.
Have you found ways to prevent the junk from being delivered to your door?
