Stop Throwing Your Newspaper on My Driveway!

Another Tip of the Hat to Arlington County for confronting the Washington Examiner for its objectionable practice of littering Arlington with unwanted and unsubscribed newspapers. One of the inspirations for this new blog has been to take pictures of all of my piss-off neighbor's signs that scream "STOP DELIVERING THE EXAMINER TO MY DRIVEWAY." Good Job Arlington!

Background

In response to the recent increase in the number of complaints received from residents, Assistant County Manager Shannon Flanagan-Watson recently met with Michael Phelps, President & Publisher of The Examiner newspapers in the Baltimore/Washingto n region.

Several strategies were discussed to decrease the number of unwanted deliveries to Arlington County residents. An agreement was made to work together to identify “hot spots” in Arlington where there have been complaints and to reduce the route sizes in these areas.

Other mitigation measures are in effect including carrier fines, spot checks, upgraded GPS system and new carrier training.
