Recycling: Putting An End To Junk Mail

recycle junk mail

In an average week, how much junk mail comes to your home? For the average American family, with two adults and two children, they could probably weigh their junk mail at the end of any given week and it would equal the weight of a small animal. An average American home can get items such as clearing houses, credit card offers, insurance offers, lottery winnings, mortgage advertisements, promises of lowering your monthly mortgage bill, college flyers from schools all over the United States, entries into contests that had never been entered in the first place, solicitations from charities and of course, retail catalogs!

What Can Be Done?

Along with the simple fact that all of these items are unnecessary and annoying, the amount of waste they create is drowning the average American family in misused, unread paper. How can this issue be dealt with? Can the waste be reduced, or never produced, for Americans all over the country? The answer to that question is, yes! There is something we can do to stop the madness of junk mail that litters our mail delivery every single day! A group exists that has done all of the work for us. They have all of the information needed to put an end to the junk mail that we are assaulted with in just a few easy steps and with the patience of a few weeks.

The Next Steps

First, you can order the Junk Mail Reduction Kit for $15.00. Once you have purchased your kit, you simply sign on to the website and activate the kit. You simply enter your name and address and the names of any other people living at your house. Even variations of a name that appears on junk mail can be added. The next step is to register those names with the Direct Marketing Association Mail Preference Service. They will remove the names from hundreds of mailing lists. This service has a one-time fee of $1.00 per name and includes monthly monitoring to ensure your names stay off unsolicited mailing lists. The option of having mail addressed to “resident,” “occupant,” or even “neighbor,” is available as well.

Because the fact that conventional mail isn’t instantaneous, it will take a few weeks for things to get rolling. However, in a few short weeks, you will receive customized pre-printed postcards to sign, stamp and mail in. Your name will be removed from as many lists that have your name in their database.

Eventually all of the companies that have your name will be notified. Soon, the endless barrage of junk mail will cease. If a piece of junk mail finds its way into your mailbox, simply sign in to your online account and have your name removed as quickly as possible. Just imagine the impact in waste reduction of one house on one street in one town will make! Why shouldn’t it be YOUR house?
