People can get snowed under with the amount of junk mail pushed through their letterboxes, junk mail is often unsolicited and a huge waste of paper. There are however a number of things you can do to reduce it…
Junk Mail Sticker
We have created some “no junk mail” stickers which you can fit on your letter box, these should stop things like Pizza menu’s and taxi cards. Pick up your FREE JUNK MAIL STICKER by visiting your local library.
Royal Mail delivers between 25 and 50 per cent of all unaddressed junk mail. To stop leaflets delivered by the postman you can register with Royal Mail’s (free) Door-to-Door Opt-Out. To register you first need to ask Royal Mail for an opt-out form. You can request the form by sending an e-mail with your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org
