- Use No Flyers or Junk Mail Stickers or Signs
If you get door to door delivery, place the sticker on your mail box. If you have a community, group or postal box, place the sticker on the inside lip of the box. It should not be placed on the inside or the outside of the door of your community box. Print your own No Junk Mail Sign.
