Catalogues and Other Junk Mail: Sign up with CatalogChoice to stop catalogues and junk mail you no longer want. It's a free service that works with over 8,000 companies to encourage them to voluntarily honor opt-out requests. If a company is not part of an opt-out service, contact them directly to be removed from their mailing lists.

Opting out will not stop all junk mail. You may still receive mail from local businesses, politicians, companies you do business with, and charities you donate to.

Avoid getting on lists

  • Tell companies you do business with to remove your name from the lists they rent, sell, or trade to other companies.
  • Tell charities not to share your contact information with other organizations.
  • Avoid giving out your contact information for surveys, contests, raffles, and product registration and warranty cards. This information is often sold for mailing lists.
