We recently received a complaint that some of our materials are contributing to a neighborhood litter problem. In order to avoid future complaints, when you pass out flyers, postcards, and other items, please make sure that you follow all local laws and ordinances. In the US (and other countries), it is illegal to place any non-postal item in a mailbox. There may be other laws regarding the distribution of printed material, soliciting, littering, harassment, etc. Please know which laws apply in your area and conduct yourself accordingly.
It may seem overly cautious, but our message won’t be heard if we don’t respect the property and rights of the people we’re trying to educate.
