8 on Your Side: Tips to Eliminate Junk Mail

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - Many people receive unwanted catalogs and flyers in the mail. That junk mail adds up, and many people say it worsened during the holiday season.

If you think begging your postman will get the junk mail to stop, think again. Junk mail is big business for the U.S. Postal Service. Companies pay the postage for the mail, and the postal service must deliver it.

Writing "return to sender" on unwanted mail won't eliminate it either. The only option available is to contact one of two companies that will take your name and address off catalog and junk mail lists.

The groups are called Direct Marketing Association and Catalog Choice. Fill out the online forms, and, in a few weeks, you should see less junk mail.

If you have a problem you want investigated, contact 8 on Your Side at 702-650-1907.
