Why stop junk
More than 17.5 billion pieces of junk mail are sent to UK homes
each year with each household receiving 650 pieces a year. It’s
easy to stop junk mail and it can make a big difference to the
amount of waste we produce.
What can you do?
Stick it to them!
A good way to reduce junk mail is by using a ‘no junk mail’
sticker that can be placed on your door or letterbox. You can pick
up your ‘no junk mail’ sticker at Sefton’s one stop shop’s and
libraries or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
or by calling Tel: 0151 255 2562.
Be tick box alert!
Take a few moments to check any small print when you buy
products or services that require you to give your name and address
– the tick boxes in the print will give you the opportunity to opt
out or in to the company sending you further information or using
