Letter to the Editor – Should flyer delivery be eliminated?

Dear representatives of the Town of St. Stephen,

I am writing to ask if there is any chance that flyer delivery can be eliminated in our town? The amount of garbage and waste is incredible. A lot of Thursdays – by the time I get to the end of my driveway to pick up the wet soggy mess (that I gave no one permission to throw onto my property) it’s too late to salvage and read the flyers anyway. I have also dealt with neighbors flyers making it on to my property.

In this day and age, where grocery store and the liquor store don’t even offer bags anymore because they have recognized the huge waste it creates, why are we allowing such wastefulness as flyers when at the click of a mouse all the sales can be viewed waste free?

I hope you give this matter some serious discussion. I suspect many people share this view.

Thank you,

Shelly Donahue
