Just an FYI, the Direct Marketing Assn now charges anywhere from $2 to $3 to opt-out of junk mailings. This apparently is a new policy as I know it was not in place last December when my sister passed and I input her mailing information.

I'm not familiar with this, John. This is a company who sends us all that awful mail, real mail? What do they do and how would you pay the fee if you were so inclined? I've been so tempted to put a bin down by my mailbox and just toss the stuff in there before taking my mail up to the house. But, like I've said for years, SOMEONE is buying this stuff, or they wouldn't continue to spend money sending it out.

I've thought of just putting a lid with a slot that says "Mail" on top of a shredder.....they should definitely not be charging to opt out.
