A Sinclair, Mullumbimby

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.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
