How to stop the junk

Knysna-Plett Herald - - Briewe | Letters -

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.
