Does anyone know who is responsible for the thinly disguised bundles of junk mail that are now arriving weekly somewhere in the vicinity of our mailboxes?

Like many I have a No Junk Mail sticker displayed, however it is being systematically ignored.

These bundles are not wrapped in any way (perhaps a good thing?) and lie rotting in the muddy puddles around town.

On Argyle Street today I collected seven for my green bin, and could easily have gathered three times as many soggy lumps if I’d been able to carry them.

It seems clear to me that The Northern Rivers Review and its content are neither needed nor excitedly whisked indoors to be read.

Please stop this unsolicited dumping and wastage.
