Return to Sender! Rubber bands bounce back to Royal Mail
ROYAL Mail may soon be swamped with thousands of their own elastic bands at an East Central sorting office in London from angry householders who’ve seen red. Campaigner Nicola Peate is to flick 13,000 red rubber bands back to Royal Mail which have been discarded in the street and on driveways
ROYAL Mail—just recovering from a 24-hour strike—may soon be swamped with thousands of its own elastic bands at the East Central sorting office in London from angry householders who’ve seen red.
Campaigner Nicola Peate (pictured) is set to flick 13,000 red rubber bands back to Royal Mail which have been discarded in the street and on people’s driveways.
The Keep Britain Tidy charity warned postal workers in April they could face fines over the pavement peril.
But it fell on deaf ears, so householders were asked to collect the evidence’ on pavements and driveways in this latest blitz on Royal Mail litter.
The charity is sending them all back to Royal Mail’s EC1 sorting centre at Old Street in Shoreditch in a giant see-through envelope.
