Stopping bulk mailing
Every loose-leaf bundle of business or supermarket fliers must be delivered along with an address postcard.
Locate this address card - the cards usually have an advertisement and a photograph of a missing child (ADVO is the most common).
Mail the address card to the address printed on the card and ask to be removed from their mailing list.
Your letter carrier's routine is to give each house a bundle of fliers so, once you stop receiving the address card(s), tape a "No Bulk Mail" sign inside your mailbox.
You can also opt-out online here.
