Return to sender
Diary of a junk mail campaigner
Ever wondered if you can return a freepost envelope stuck to a brick to a junk mailer? We might have an answer…

Can I legally post junk mail back to Royal Mail by simply putting it in a postbox?
I work for local council. We regularly send planning notification letters to residents. These letters are addressed to the owner/occupier and a large number of them are returned to us. We think this is because of the postal preference service. Do you have any suggestions?
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?
