Royal Mail vow to stop the red band litter
15 July 2009
Royal Mail has pledged that they will recycle the 13,000 red rubber bands that we returned to them last month.
In a letter from the Director of Delivery and Collections, Michael Stockdale, Royal Mail assures us that they “take the issue of littering very seriously”
The postal company currently have a recycling scheme in place for the millions of rubber bands that are used in their day to day operations.
However, our rubber bands campaign has highlighted that there are still a high number of bands that end up on the pavements and in people’s gardens.
In response to this Royal Mail has stated that they will continue to train their postmen and women to “understand the importance of avoiding litter”.
Michael Stockdale goes on to confirm that Royal Mail is “committed to making every effort to help keep streets across the UK clear of litter”.
