Reduce Junk Mail
Reducing Your Junk MailReducing junk mail gets clutter out of your mailbox, frees up your time, and helps protect the environment. It takes 17 trees to make a ton of paper. That means nearly 100 million trees get used for junk mail each year in the U.S. Let's keep the trees in the forest, and get junk mail out of your life.
Place Your Name on a Do Not Mail List
You can have your name placed on the do not mail list maintained by Direct Marketing Association (DMA). Registering with DMA's mail preference service will reduce the amount of direct mail you receive. There is a $1 fee to register for the service.
You can also remove the name of individuals under your care from commercial mailing lists. Family members, friends, and caretakers can remove names of individuals by registering with the DMA's Do Not Contact list for Caregivers (DNCC).
You can also stop junk mail from being sent to a deceased relative. The DMA maintains a Deceased Do Not Contact list for use by family members of deceased persons.
