OK, it's a pain getting all this junk mail, I agree, but what's the major problem, instead of worrying about returning it, it's much easier to just toss it in the trash unopened, end of problem.

agree. we've tried siging up with the DMA (see earlier post) and that did work...for a short time. so we just shred anything with our names on it (mostly charities that we support...always asking for more. the rest goes into recycling.

We have a central mail building in our community. One trash can at each end of the mailbox panels. The trash can fills quicker than the maiboxes. We collect our mail every three or four days. About twenty pieces go in the trash, one or two go home with us. Same with most other residents ...

Recycling instead of trash, but yeah.

Some junk mail contains your personal info that can be used to steal your identity so be careful just tossing it in the trash.

My other pet peeve is the junk mail solicitations for donations that contain "freebies" of return address labels. Who uses them anymore? All my bills are paid electronically so I almost never mail anything. And you can't shred those, the sticky paper will gum up the shredder.

not every bill can be paid electronically and stuff other than those few bills still has to be mailed…greeting cards, actual letters to folks who don’t do e-mail and so on. we don’t use many return address labels but we do use them. you’re right about shredding them. we just tear the excess labels into pieces.
