  • Royal Mail has an ‘opt out’ system for residents to choose to decline flyers and unaddressed junk mail - email:
  • Contact your bank, building society and credit card companies and ask them not to send you promotional mail, for example for loans, credit cards and mortgages.


  • Take your junk mail to the paper banks at local recycling centres or to any of our household waste recycling centres.
  • Shred your junk mail and add it to your compost heap - find out more about composting by visiting our composting pages.
