Junk Mail

Kim from South Waikato District

Does anyone know who I could complain to about junk mail?

I have a "please no advertising" sign on my letterbox.
It used to work.

But now who ever is delivering the advertising has loaded up my letterbox and its now falling on the ground.

I have not emptied the letterbox for a few weeks now and they cannot fit anymore junk mail , so now they have started putting it on top of the letterbox.

Because my letterbox is so laden with advertising, I wonder if the mailman will bother putting my genuine mail in the box?

I purposely replaced my old letterbox with a small one to deter advertising mail.

Do you think they should make a new regulation, that you should only receive advertising if you have subscribed to it?

If the person delivering the advertising can see the box is full, why do they keep trying to put more in it and on it? And on the ground? Is this legal? Its littering.

Stolen set of bagpipes

Jenna from Te Awamutu

Yesterday our house was burgled. Amongst items taken were my set of bagpipes. These are no good to anyone else. They are made from African Blackwood and have brass coloured trims. The bag is bright red in colour, and has red woolen cords around the drones. Would very much like for these to be returned.
