The Fast and Easy Way to Stop Verizon Junk Mail From Reaching Your Mailbox

We all need a little less clutter in our lives and inboxes. The unsolicited and impersonal mail we receive from companies for promotional purposes daily rarely provides us, the consumers, with any value. Instead, the hundreds of mailers addressed to the "current resident" end up clogging our mailboxes and inevitably being thrown away.

Verizon Wireless claims to be a modern company and the world's largest 5G cellular data provider. But even in the age of technology, Verizon still employs outdated direct mail campaigns to advertise products and promotions. For most of us, this type of advertising is the definition of junk mail.

Receiving junk mail is annoying, and we all tend to immediately toss it out without thinking twice. Some sources claim that about 45% of junk mail goes directly into landfills without ever being read.

If you'd like to reduce the amount of junk mail you receive and the impact on the environment, DoNotPay offers a service that contacts companies like Verizon that send you physical promotional materials frequently.

What Kind of Physical Spam or Junk Mail Does Verizon Send?

The average American receives 18 pieces of junk mail for every piece of real mail they receive. This much mail may result in important mail being lost in the shuffle or accidentally thrown away. Verizon is one of the worst "junk mail" offenders in the modern era and often sends physical mail for advertising purposes.

Here are six types of physical spam/junk mail you may have received:

  1. Catalogs
  2. Coupons
  3. Advertising circulars
  4. Flyers
  5. Post Cards
  6. Special offers
