It's YOUR Center:

As an employee of Caspar Community, I spend a silly amount of time picking up junk mail that has been left to blow around in our beautiful mail pavilion. I know my neighbors as lovely people who wouldn't think of throwing things around their treasured places, but I can't help but grumble as I spend precious minutes, every day, chasing flying papers. I pick up the litter when I'm on the clock (paid for by your generous donations) & when I'm off the clock (because I think our mail pavilion was a special gift to our community & I want it kept clean). I take my own junk mail, along with your littered junk mail, home to recycle. I get very little junk mail myself because I tell retail companies I don't want multiple copies of their catalogues, I have opted out of prescreen credit offers & phone books, & followed the other excellent, & quickly accomplished, advice on sites like Please find something else to do about your junk mail besides leave it lying around for me. The mail pavilion is yours, please take care of it. Thank you for your consideration.
