Junk Mail Reduction Tactics That Work

You recycle, you reduce, and you reuse…so why aren’t you doing something about all of those bits of junk mail that you get? Yes, you toss them into the proper bins, but you could be doing one thing more. What is that? You could be preventing yourself from receiving these things in the first place. It all starts with understanding the junk mail is mail that is sent out “generally” and is very irresponsible. It is an attempt to gain customers, but it also uses a ton of paper, manpower, and fuel to end up in the local recycle bin or landfill.

Why Consider Junk Mail Reduction

This brief article is going to look at the reasons to reduce junk mail and how to do so without wasting your time. Firstly, we already mentioned that junk mail often ends up as junk and is not even opened by the recipient. Until the postal regulations forbid this kind of wasteful business, you can request that you not receive such pieces from those who seem to send the most.

Yes, unfortunately, you will have to spend time on the phone or Internet letting these companies know to take you off of their mailing lists. You can also return items to them with a “do not contact” request in the envelope.

Success in Junk Mail Reduction

Once you spend a few months doing these sorts of things you will notice that your volume decreases. You can then keep things under control by delivering your junk mail back to your local post office. They have enormous bins just for junk mail and unwanted items. This prevents the materials from heading to the landfill through your regular trash, and ensures that the paper is at least recycled and not going to waste.

The old-fashioned “snail mail” is still very useful, but it can be a source of unwanted trash that comes in the form of junk mail. You can take steps to reduce the flow that you receive.
