Would you prefer junk mail continue or stop?

Is your mailbox cluttered with catalogs and credit card offers? Well, if you feel like you're drowning in junk mail, there is hope.

Koeppen added the Environmental Protection Agency reports Americans as a whole receive close to five million tons of junk mail every year.

 

Koeppen recommended these websites to opt-out of receiving mailings:

 

CatalogChoice.org
DMAchoice.org

If you do opt-out, Koeppen said, it can take "a little bit of time" to go into effect.

 

"If it doesn't work, you can file a complaint against the company," Koeppen said. "Catalog Choice says that about 95 percent of the opt-outs are being honored by these companies."

  • If all junk mail stops will the post office go bankrupt?
    Honestly I don't get much junk mail that I don't either shred (credit card offers) or recycle.
