I've heard a couple of articles on the radio recently relating to the amount of junk mail people receive. Apparently there is a website you can go on to and register your name, which will take you off mailing lists. Does anyone know what it is? I think it might be MPS (Mailing Preference Service) but not 100% sure. Cheers.

Wow I didn't know about that one; however one important consideration: if your council uses Royal Mail to deliver information leaflets to your door, you won't get those any more... Which obviously could be an issue. I don't think our council do...

Not true! This is actually a scare story perpetrated by RM to stop people opting out. I spoke with my local SO and said the postmen use common sense, they know what is 'junk' unaddressed mail and those official ones that the council or government distribute. The latter gets through no problem!

Don't believe what the Royal Mail try and tell you. It's all aimed at pursuading you to remain with the service because after all, it is the Royal Mail's highest source of revenue, irrespective of whether you actually want any of it or not. Don't forget also that the postal workers latest pay agreement removed the limit of delivering three items of junk mail per week. They can now be asked to deliver any amount.

 

RM have made it as difficult as possible to opt out, and don't encourage anyone to tell you about it. A postal worker in Barry (South Wales) was sacked for advising people on his round about the option, although he has now been reinstated to other duties. But if you ignore all the dire threats and disinformation it is well worthwhile doing.
