Stop the littering of the Wentworth Courier

The Eastern suburbs local community in Sydney is alarmed by the systematic littering of a local newspaper, the "Wenthworth Courier".

Every Wednesday, the newspaper deverses hundreds of kilos of pastic-filmed free magazines in the Beachside communities such as Bondi, Bronte, Tamarama or even further like Randwick, etc...regardless of your choice to have the said journal delivered, delivery people throw them in the streets, sometimes by dozens in pack in the pathways. Even after opting out, we've seen the journal back on porches after a few weeks.

We, the people, would like the Journal to re-think its way of distribution and adopt a voluntary subscribing system instead of throwing hundreds of magazines in the streets and in nature. Needless to say we are close to our oceans, and numerous of those NON RECYCLABLE items end up in the water nearby.

Considering digital distribution in 2017 seems like a effective way to stop the littering, and resolve the distribution issues all in once as well.

The Wentworth Courier had numerous emails and calls of locals complaining but is refusing to adopt a better, more ecologic way of distributing its copies.

Local councils are washing their hands of the issue as they are linked to the distributor.

NSW Environment doesn't seem to think the issue is big enough.

We believe if we can reach Mr Howard the editor, we can come up with solutions better for our community and our planet.
