A novel idea

Dear Editor:

I have a simple idea for Aspen. What if 90 percent of locals who get their mail at the post office would actually open their eyes and put all unwanted and junk mail in the blue recycle bins? I know it’s an extra 5 feet to walk from the trash cans, but think of the tons of paper that could be recycled weekly, instead of filling up our landfill.

This shouldn’t be a right-wing/left-wing issue, rather a human issue.

Carl Heck
