It may be a cheap way to advertise but it is such a waste of resources. 


The most effective way to help prevent this is to make a complaint to Council- click here for online form.

Help change the culture.

The Council by law officers will act on complaints in a particular area and hopefully discourage the distributors from polluting the streets with pages of cheap consumer crap.

    For council to appropriately address your enquiry, please supply the names of the companies that the junk mail is for (eg. KMart, Big W, Coles, Woolworth, etc) so that your query can be attended to in a timely manner.

    Thanks for that 'prompt' inperegian, this is what I sent - should have done that years ago!

    rubbish - litter

    Dear council, I'm concerned at the amount of rubbish that is thrown into or near my and many other houses in town, under the guise of advertising or free newspaper/newsletter? Is there a way of preventing this wanton waste of resources that seems to constitute illegal dumping?
    Regards John Fuller

    Council has changed their response. You have to catch the distributors in the act and send evidence in to Council!
