JUNK MAIL AND CATALOGS

Unwanted letters, paper envelopes, and catalogs are Compostable Waste (C). Remove plastic window from envelopes or put the mix of materials in Non-Recyclable/Non-Compostable Waste (NRNC).

However, it is best to reduce junk mail at its source:

  • DirectMail.com: A free service that removes your name from commercial mailing lists.
  • Catalog Choice: A free service that cancels subscriptions to unwanted catalogs.
  • OptOutPrescreen.com: A free service that ends pre-approved credit card and insurance offers.
  • EcoLogical Mail Coalition: A paid service for businesses to help eliminate mail delivered for former employees.
