Why Is it OK to Toss This Trash in My Yard?
Why is it OK for someone to drive around the City of St. Cloud and throw all this trash in our yards? Please stop!
Every month, I walk to the end of my driveway, my yard, or my sidewalk (wherever it ended up) -- pick up the trash, dump the contents into my recycling bin, and throw the bag in with my plastic bag recycling.
The cover says 'Shopping News.' LOL! News? It's a bunch of ads -- and NOTHING else.
I take my dog for a walk and these things are everywhere. I'm pretty sure that if I drove around St. Cloud and threw crap in everybody's yard, I'd be hearing from City officials of some type.
After a quick Google of 'Shopping News' I see this:
Shopping News is a carrier delivered source of shopping information delivered to non-subscribers of The St. Cloud Times.
What? If I subscribe you'll stop? Still no.
And then this:
The number to call to request delivery, stop delivery or to report a delivery issue is 320-259-3600. This number is prominently displayed on the front page of each Shopping News edition.
I got a message when I called to attempt to stop delivery this afternoon saying, "Thank you for calling the St. Cloud Times, we are sorry we missed your call. Office hours are 9 AM to 1 PM Monday through Friday."
How do I get those hours? Maybe they're busy throwing unwanted stuff in our yards.
