Do you put them straight in the bin or use them?

Bin em, if they need to advertise they don't get enough business from recommendations.

:roll:

Maybe its a new business?

It depends on the takeaway for me, annoying when you are looking for one and cant find any leaflets
#14
Bin em. I think its worth putting the bin directly under the letterbox somedays. My poor postie too, even when we have no letters hes still going door-to-door delivering leaflets for Dominos and 50 Plus!
#15
Stick them in the takeaway menu filing draw, or what you would call a random kitchen draw.

Meh I am a takeaway hussy, I'll try any that will deliver out to the middle on no-where:thumbsup:

you feel sorry for him doing his job, id say he prefers leaflets in comparison to letters and packages as they would be lighter.

Anyway arent leaflets delievered by the takeaway themselves, ie they give some one 7 quid an hour to deliver X amount of leaflets

True. But it seems a shame/pointless having to go door to door when its not needed. I need my electric bill, I however dont need a leaflet from 50 Plus. Give him (and my bin) a break I say :thumbsup:

I stick with the ones I know and bin the rest.

I am tempted to put a no junk mail sticker up.

I must put out a bins worth of them every year.

If I want a take away, I google local takeaways.

I know what you mean and if it's not them it's clothing companies collecting goods for charity but only donating a small amount per tonne to the actual charity:roll:

I always google the charity and if it is not one I think worthwhile.

They get nothing.

My fella's grandma manages a charity shop.

So I give them to her normally x x

I was just about to post something similar! We get at least 2 bags p/wk. :x
I tend to save up the items and drive to a charity shop of my choice instead, Id rather see it go there than to a charity Ive never heard of, or see the collection company receive their cut.

Indeed,i agree,even though it would be easier for me as i don't drive,but i refuse to give them anything decent,it all goes to the local charity shops even though it usually means i have to walk with it,recently i had a sort out and i ended up with 5 carrier bags of stuff.

I've still got 2 to take,can't carry them all in one go.

I did that and it only worked half the time. So at times I felt like stomping outside saying "can't you read" but I held back and took 10 deep breaths instead lol

..Tempted to try it again though, I'd rather look like a grumpy so and so than have all their rubbish. I try and go paperless with bills/statements where I can, then I get all these leaflets and junk anyway...

Not one penny per tonne is sent to charity.

The contract is bought yearly for a set amount to use the charity name. Say £50,000 per year for the use of the Red Cross charity name and charity number on the bags. Then everything earned is on a self employed basis.

£600 per tonne where I live.

I pay over £100,000 per year to two charities for the use of their names. If I only earn £70,000 in that year then I have actually lost money.

So all in all, no donations are made to the charity, they have already received thousands of pounds at the beginning of each year. So if people don't fill the bags with clothing and I don't earn money, then the next year the charities lose hundreds of thousands of pounds as people in my type of business won't renew the contracty if there is no demand for people filling the bags. :thumbsup:

So instead of throwing your stuff in the bin, it really does benefit the charities to fill the bags up.
