Addressed junk mail

The Mailing Preference Service (MPS) is a free service set up and funded by the direct mail industry to enable consumers to have their names and home addresses in the UK removed from or added to lists used by the industry. The MPS can remove your name from up to 95% of Direct Mail lists. It will not stop mail that has been sent from overseas, un-addressed material or mail addressed to The Occupier.


Unaddressed junk mail

The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) can provide advice on how to reduce the amount of unaddressed mail received.
