Stop Receiving Junk Mail
You Can Stop Postal Junk Mail in Canada
Instructions to stop receiving junk mail from Canada Post.
It has always been possible to stop postal junk mail but not everyone knows how to do it.
If you post a sign that directs Canada Post to STOP JUNK MAIL, then the numerous flyers and other
advertisements delivered to your door through the postal service in Canada will stop.
The simple but little known solution to stop receiving junk mail delivery from Canada Post is not well advertised.
To stop junk mail (euphemistically called admail) deliveries all you have to do is put a notice on your mailbox!
It is that simple!
Here is the quote from the Canada Post website:
"Customers who do not wish to receive advertisement mail should put a note to this effect on
their mailbox if they receive door-to-door delivery."
Canada Post also warns that this action will only stop postal junk mail and not unsolicited mailings from private companies.
Putting up such a notice will also mean that you might not receive some municipal service notices that are also delivered
through this sytem.
Check out the Canada Post website for more detailed information on how to stop junk mail.
Your efforts to reduce the amount of unsolicited mail delivered to your door by the postal service is not only
good for the planet but will reduce the number of things you have to do!
With less junk mail arriving every day you
have fewer pieces of mail to go through and fewer pieces of paper to put in the recycle box making it
much lighter when taken to the curb!
