To those who do no want the the Seattle Times Savings Source thrown in their yard each week, read on:
The Seattle Times describes the Savings Source to advertisers as a "4-page, full-color, advertising wrap that is in-home each Wednesday offering reach into both subscribers and non-subscribers in the greater Seattle area."
This advertising distribution creates litter, which is unsightly and attracts crime. When not picked up promptly, it tells criminals no one is home (it completely exposes homes that have been vacated due to foreclosure). It also unnecessarily places a higher demand on our waste removal/recycle resources. I'm very surprised the Seattle Times hasn't discovered a more neighborly way to advertise. They really need to re-evaluate how to be a better corporate citizen.
In the mean time, there is a way to Opt Out.
I called to learn how to stop delivery the of this nuisance a short while ago -and share the information with everyone I know. Hopefully Tukwila Talk will get the word out quicker to those that need it!
To Stop Delivery:
Send an e-mail to Paul Wood at the Seattle Times Savings Source - Request they halt delivery to your residence, give them your name and your address.
Be patient. It can take a couple of cycles for the delivery to stop.

Paul was very nice to work with and is willing to help anyone who wants to opt out.
Good luck to all in regaining a litter-free yard and improving crime prevention in your neighborhood!
