To The Daily Sun,
(The other day), I received a junk mailing from a Lakes Region business which causes me to write. We receive advertising mailings all the time, and it all ends up in recycling. However, this mailer had a plastic "combination box" attached to it with the instruction to pull out the tab and see if your number matched the winning numbers in the flyer. When the tab is pulled, the number in the "combination box" lights up, indicating a power source is inside.
So what do I do with it? We have recycled as much as possible for years. Even before Gilford had single stream recycling, we'd take our recycling to Laconia. But now, we have no choice. It cannot be recycled. We have throw this into the garbage, and thus the landfill. Perhaps businesses could show a little civic responsibility by not including non-recyclable material with their advertising flyers.
