• HERE is an analysis of all junk mail hand-delivered through my door during 2016. I am not including mass mailings brought by the postman.
I’m pleased to report, for the second year in a row, that although the number of items is up from 311 in 2015 to 324 last year the weight of deliveries is down from 5.43 kilos to 4.9 kilos. Takeaway food businesses top the list again, weighing in at 850 grams but with only 79 leaflets – down almost 50 per cent from 2014; pizzas 28, Chinese and Asian 22 and Indian 11. No more junk mail, please!
