Stop Junk Mail is a not-for-profit junk mail advice service. This website provides free and independent information about stopping unsolicited mail.

There's a lot of information on this website. To prevent you get lost, here are some quick pointers:

  • If you're here because you want to know how to stop all that wasteful, useless junk mail coming through the door you should make yourself a cuppa and read through the Guide to stamping out junk mail.
  • If you got an unusual junk mail issue (i.e. something not covered in the guide) you might want to consult Dr Junk Buster.
  • If you enjoy ramblings about junk mail you probably like my Diary.
  • If you want to get involved in the battle against junk mail the forum is a good place to start.
  • If you're feeling generous you could buy lots of anti-junk mail goodies and/or make a donation.

The junk mail handling fee

10th September 2015

Hurray! You can deter junk mail deliverers with a junk mail handling fee notice! Boohoo… You won't be able to enforce the notice. (And so we still need to get the junk mail industry to formally recognise anti-junk mail signs).

It's official: No Cold Calling means No Cold Calling

7th September 2015

The Institute of Fundraising has concluded that 'No Cold Calling' means 'No Cold Calling' … even if someone is knocking on doors to collect money for poor kittens in Battersea.

Get a sticker! Please?

One of the reasons why I started Stop Junk Mail is that it's stupid that you have to do three or four different things just to stop unsolicited, unaddressed mail. It could be as easy as putting a smartly worded sticker on your door. Stickers such as these 'NO/NO, NO/YES', for instance.

I'm hoping that one day these stickers will be readily and freely available throughout the UK. Until that happy day comes you can buy the stickers right here.
