More Trash Being Delivered Weekly to Our Streets

newspaperwbag_1416The local newspaper, The Tennessean, once a week publishes local news for some of the communities in the Nashville area. Until a few weeks ago, this local edition was packaged with ad inserts and mailed to everyone. I gladly received it weekly in my mailbox with other mail.

I know that the United States Post Office has instituted changes for different classes of mail such as periodicals and newspapers. Recently I have noticed that this weekly edition of local news is being packaged in plastic and tossed in driveways whether you want the news or not.

Most folks do not want it and do not pick it up. I found several today double bagged and wet in the streets of my neighborhood. Unfortunately, The Tennessean is counting on folks to pick up the newspaper out of the street. It is just not going to happen.

We recycle our unwanted newspaper.
