Stop Junk Mail in your mail box - SVP. Pas de Circlulaires!

You are as tired of ALL the junk mail you get from publisac and from Canada Post? You can stop that junk mail... did you know that? We did but are only getting around to taking action now. My wife at first didn't much like the idea as she wanted to still get the flyers for stores we frequent. The solution to that was easy, download the flyer from the stores websites. See a fairly complete list below of flyers to download or view online. Oh hey, if you have more flyers online you would like me to add to the list, please email me or leave a comment below. Thanks.

Step one to reducing junk mailing and helping to save our planet:

Put a no Junk Mail sticker on your mailbox. This will help to eliminate the amount of non-addressed ad-mail you get in your mail box. Here in Quebec you might want to do that in french, or both french and english. Your choice, but I doubt just putting an english sign up will get you too far. If, like me, you don't know where to get a sticker, I have made a PDF you can print on your own colour printer and put on your mail box yourself. You can either get Avery type sticker paper at your local stationary store, or you can use clear packing tape to tape the stickers printed on plain paper, to your mail box. If you keep getting non-addressed ad-mail then take a quick minute to call this number 1-866-607-6301 or visit Canada Post's website contact page.

Step two:

Sign up on the Canadian Marketing Agencies (CMA) website for their no-call list. This will help eliminate new companies from sending you addressed ad mail.

I would love to hear other peoples success on eliminating their junk mail they get. Now if only we can get rid of all that spam smile Actually we can, but that is a different story all together.

I was hoping to find a No Junk Mail sticker in French, but unfortunately, “circulairs” means flyers, not inclusive to junk mail. Do you have any other suggestions?

I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to write a comprehensive guide (specific to QC) for this. 

I think I just might see if I can print out a bunch of these for my neighbors.  I don’t know how much of an effect will have, I live in a bit of a “laisser faire” type apt complex, but I’ll give it a shot. 

Thank you!

@virginia: “PAS de circulaire” is the translation used here (Montreal) for no junk mail. The post man seems to know what it means, and our junk mail has stopped.

@Jessica: It is always worth a try to stop unwanted junk mail. As you say, most people become complacent with their fight against junk mail. Go get ‘em girl!

We have used the stickers above on our own mail box with great success. We did have to call publi sac to have them stop. We also spoke with Canada Post as one of our postmen wasn’t adhering to our wishes, but the other one was. One call and it was all sorted out. We have basically had no junk mail since we put the stickers up, except for the odd one or two pieces over the last few months.
