Even though most junk mail is completely recyclable, a better option is to stop it before it’s produced. The two key steps are:
- Remove your name from existing mailing lists.
- Prevent your name from getting on new lists.
These web sites can help you get off of mailing lists:
OptOutPrescreen.com (credit card and insurance offers)
dmachoice.org (general direct marketing offers)
directmail.com (national opt-out list)
yellowpagesoptout.com (phone directories)
Catalog Choice (catalogs & direct mail)
