Letterbox signs

Dr Junk Buster

We are a block management company and we get horrnedous amounts of junk mail which residents simply leave in the communal areas. This causes a fire and health and safety. Do you have any recommendations to aid us stopping this?

Is there anything that can be done about these fast food menu posters that seem to be deliberately ignoring signs on front doors that clearly state "No Junk Mail" or "No Menus"? I have displayed two such signs, one really big one in the window next to the front door and one directly above the letterbox where it can't possibly be missed. I have even tried writing and phoning these ghastly junk food parlours to no avail. Is there anything that can be done?

Do you know if any local authorities have tried to stop companies ignoring 'No Junk Mail' stickers – perhaps by naming and shaming those distribution companies who do ignore the 'No Junk Mail' requests?

I have several No Junk Mail signs (hand-written and ready-made) on my letter box, and while the amount of junk has reduced, I still get tons of takeaway menus and flyers from local business. How do I find out who's distributing them? I don't mean the guys actually delivering them because they usually don't even speak English, but the companies who employ them. I want them to train their staff to respect people's wishes.

Guide to stamping out junk mail

Putting an anti-junk mail sign on your door is the only way to stop unaddressed junk mail delivered by local businesses and free newspapers. It won't stop unaddressed mail distributed by Royal Mail though, as the company instructs postmen to ignore any type of 'No Junk Mail' sign.
