If you only want some of your junk mail stopped, contacting individual companies is the way to go. Write to firms that send you unsolicited material to tell them to stop. Be sure to use the enclosed Business Reply envelopes when replying through the mail, and address them to Customer Service. You can also call the firms' toll free numbers and ask to speak with customer service.4. Buyers are covered under a manufacturer's warranty whether a card is returned or not. These cards are primarily used to gather names for mailing lists. Write National Demographics & Lifestyles, a firm that collects this information, to have your name removed.

Here's some Junk Mail Facts that I hope will inspire you to take action...
The average person gets about 1.5 non-marketing letters per week, compared to 10.8 pieces of junk mail.
• Each person will receive almost 560 pieces of junk mail this year which works out to about 4.5 million tons of junk mail produced per year.
• 44% of all junk mail is thrown in the trash, unopened and unread.
• Approximately 40% of the solid mass making up our landfills is paper &paperboard waste.
• By the year 2010 (which is, by the way, the year when the Mayan & Aztec calendars end..), it is predicted to make up about 48% of landfill waste.
• 100 million trees are ground up each year to produce junk mail.
• Your name is typically worth 3 to 20 cents each time it is sold.
• Be persistent & patient in your battle against junk mail. A decrease in junk mail should begin in a month, but removal all lists takes time. While you wait, recycle what you can. There are special recyling organizations in some states just for junk mail. I'll try to compile a list of them here soon. If you know of any, plese contact me with that info.
