What a Waste!
This is the recycling bin that sits by our mail boxes at our apartment complex. This particular bin gets filled with junk mail and fliers mostly. Once a week we receive sales fliers like what you get when you purchase a copy of the Sunday newspaper and most of these fliers end up in this recycling bin. What a waste of our resources! At least these sale fliers and junk mail are being recycled. I wonder if all of these companies that advertise in these fliers know that their ads are going into the trash -- most of them not even looked at. I don't look at my sales fliers. They go directly into this recycling bin. I think these advertisers need to figure out that this is the age of computers and websites. If someone wants to know what is on sale at a particular store, then look it up on the website instead of wasting paper and ink that end up in the trash!
