To the Editor:
With the recent decision to no longer recycle at Post Offices in Vineyard Haven and Edgartown has come a wave of complaints and littering. It is time for us to take responsibility for the mail we get, and help the postal workers, who were swamped before they had the added responsibility of cleaning up our mess. If you get mail you don’t want, or don’t care to take a magazine or flyer home to read or recycle, then maybe it is time to phone (or text, or write) that company and tell them you don’t want their solicitations. Tell them it is a waste of paper and is creating excess refuse. Maybe suggest they send emails if you want to stay in touch or know about sales. Instead of blaming the Post Office or complaining, let’s take responsibility for our environment and create positive change.
