Education

Junk mail includes all unsolicited advertising mail, direct mail, admail, leaflets, flyers, circulars, catalogues and pamphlets.

"... the average household receives about 33 kilograms every year - about the weight of a golden retriever."

Save a tree! Place a "NO JUNK MAIL" or "NO CIRCULARS" sign on your mailbox.

Reduce

Say "No thanks" when offered a catalogue or to be entered on a mail-out database. Ask if there is an email catalogue or newsletter database instead.

Reuse

Make it into an envelope or decoration.

Use for an art and craft project.

Use it as wrapping paper.

Recycle

Junk mail can be placed in the mixed paper cage at the Whanganui Resource Recovery Centre.

Disposal

The glossy paper of some junk mailers does not biodegrade well, and should be kept from landfill where possible.
