I regularly collect up to ten red rubber bands a week from postmen droppings 
(sorry). I take them into the post office and ask the manager to talk to the 
postie! The local manager is very onside now, once I'd explained why I was 
bringing them in and tells the postie accordingly; she says!

I also snip them when throwing other rubber bands, etc., in the rubbish bin, 
this may not stop birds/animals eating them but should stop them wrapping 
around various heads, neck, feet, etc!
