Stop Junk Mail and Save Some Trees


We can’t help you prevent from getting some things in the mail, but the following will reduce a lot of your junk mail that you receive. This of course reduces the number of trees needed to create these unwanted mailings.

Contact the Direct Marketing Association’s (DMA) Mail Preference Service (MPS). You must re-register after five years.

Register for the Mail Preference Service by mail. Send a letter plus a $1 check or money order to:

Mail Preference Service
Direct Marketing Association
PO Box 643
Carmel, NY 10512

Click here for a simple mail-in form,

When you register, your name and address are placed in a do not mail file which is updated monthly and distributed to DMA members quarterly. DMA members are required to update their lists at least quarterly, and some do it monthly. Businesses who are not members of the DMA also take advantage of this do not mail list, so registering with the DMA will reduce much of your junk mail.


Register online

You may also sign up online at the DMA’s website. There is no fee for online registration. Visit: DMA says this option is quicker than by postal mail.
