How to stop the junk
Dermot O’Dea, Knysna:
Junk mail in your letterbox or, worse still, wedged in your fence? It is very annoying, and the recipients like myself, who not only have no use for junk mail but who also disagree strongly with the concept, must then dispose of it.
I suggest an idea which I have seen successfully used in Europe. The municipality sells coloured discs (at a nominal price) which are fixed to one’s gate or fence. These discs prohibit professional littering companies (my definition) from leaving junk mail. If they do, then they are fined.
