RE: [greenyes] Recycling evicted from Post Offices
Should we understand that this is a nation-wide policy?  Are they also
removing the trash cans from the P.O.s?

Subject: [greenyes] Recycling evicted from Post Offices


Hello out there,

Apparently there is a "No Recycling Policy" for the US Postal Service, and
we received notice that we have to remove our free recycling bins from the
local post offices by Friday.  The reason - we are discouraging purchases
from mass mailings by providing recycling options for "bulk mailings."

Check out the front page of our local paper:

Are there any other smaller, rural recyclers that have recycling bins in
Post Offices that are also being evicted?

Any advice before we chain ourselves to the bins?

Thanks,
Carly Wier
