Junk Mail


Curbside Recycling

Most junk mail can be recycled in your curbside recycling bin. Envelopes may also be included in this recycling. Check with your city waste hauler or on their website for details on what types of junk mail, brochures, coated papers, or stapled items should be avoided in the recycle bin. You may also contact services such as DMAchoice to see how to opt out of bulk mailings.

Recycling Center

Local recycling centers may also accept junk mail and newspapers for recycling. Check here for a recycling center near you.
