Dyson Road & surrounding roads are being constantly littered by postmen who discard the rubber bands from packets of post onto the street or pavement. An email to the local sorting office suggesting this could be avoided by the simple expedient of requiring their employees to return the rubber bands to the depot for re-use thus saving the PO money & the local residents from litter, elicited the response that the bands were 'biodegradable' [ over several months in my experience ] as if that made it OK to throw them away in the street ! As they seem to ignore sensible suggestion from the public, their customers, & to feel that they are a law unto themselves who are immune from litter fines, of which they must owe nationally tens, if not hundreds of thousands of pounds, would a polite request from Waltham Forest council, who I understand is 'taking a tough stance on littering', that the PO desist from littering the local/national streets, carry more weight than individual residents emails ? Or, failing that, the threat of, or actual legal action stop this once & for all ?
