Anyone know to get rid of junk mail that you receive from the post office?

Do you mean the occaisional things the post office sends out or the junk mail you're getting mailed to you?

Contact the Direct Marketing Association and ask them to place you on their list of "DO NOT CONTACT" addresses that they distribute to their members. Contact all of your magazine subscriptions, credit card companies, mail order compnaies with whom you do business, etc., and instruct them to NOT distribute your name to other companies or contact you in any way outside of normal business and billing. Every time you make a new purchase from a mail order catalog, subscribe to a magazine, renew a magazine subscription, get a new credit card, etc., instruct them to NOT contact you outside of normal business and billing and to additionally not distribute your name to any mailing lists, etc. Within 90 days you'll see a dramatic reduction in junk mail and within six months or so, you notice a junk mail cessation.

I also write nasty notes and mail back the postage-paid stuff. That reduces junk mail, too.

The USPS won't do anything about that "Current Resident" shit. They're actually paid to fill up your mail box.

Well Ill state a warning to the others here... about 3 years ago I sent for a "Delta Force" catalog... After someone told me they had some neat stuff in it. Well After that all hell broke loose and Ive been getting all kinds of somewhat gun related crap ever sence. Ive gotten Delta Press and Now Im getting Guns n Stuff I never requested that crap but they distributed my address anyway. and now the shit comes adressed to my parents If I could I would wring delta presses neck for that. Be warned do not request thier stuff. And Also I have never purchased anything from any of these companys.

They AUTOMATICALLY distribute your name. You have to request that it NOT be distributed.

One time I sent back a "sample" of some of my cats finest catshit with a warning that the entire sandbox would be next to Columbia House.
I haven't gotten any junk mail from them since.

I tried to tape a prepaid return envelope to a brick to send it back to a credit card company, the post office refused to accept it for delivery.

I hate letter type junk mail about sending away for info, contests, etc. I really don't mind catalog type (other than the wasting trees thing) as I peruse them while on the shitter.

KA3B - I think you have to fit the large weight IN the envelope -- which is why I always include a handful of gravel.  [;D]

To my knowledge, the POST OFFICE has never sent me any junk mail.  I seriously doubt they've sent any to you either.

They have, though, delivered mail sent to me by others.
