Stop Junk Mail Service for Businesses
Unwanted mail can be more than a waste of natural resources like trees and water. It can also be a waste of money for businesses.
Staff time lost in sorting through mounds of unsolicited direct mail, catalogs, trade journals or mail for past employees + Janitorial and disposal or recycling costs in getting rid of junk mail = $$$ wasted
Eco-Cycle offers a Stop Junk Mail for GOOD service to help medium and large businesses eliminate the delivery of unwanted mail.
Details About the Program
How does the program work?
Using a unique and proprietary software program created specifically for Eco-Cycle by Catalog Choice—the nation's largest and most effective mail preference provider—Eco-Cycle works directly with your mail staff to “opt out” of each unwanted piece of mail to stop it from being delivered to your business. We then track your “environmental savings” and provide you with a report so you can know and share how your efforts have benefitted the environment.
Your company mailroom collects the mail you DO NOT want and gives it to your Eco-Cycle contact. This includes mail for former employees and other unwanted mail items processed in the mailroom. Employees can toss the items they no longer wish to receive in a “STOP Junk Mail Box.” You then deliver the junk mail box to Eco-Cycle by courier or by shipping the package.
Eco-Cycle processes each opt-out request individually by contacting the sender, i.e. the direct mail company, to ask that your employee(s) be removed from their mailing list.
The unwanted mail is then eliminated. Because junk mail pieces may be printed in advance and in the process of coming to your business, there may be a delay of up to 90 days. But the mail WILL stop!
We provide you with a monthly Environmental Savings Report to show the resources your company saved. The report details the number of trees and gallons of water saved, pounds of solid waste reduced, and the pounds of carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) you prevented. You can easily share these resource savings with stakeholders (e.g. in a press release, annual report, letter to shareholders, poster for employees, etc.).
As an added benefit, you can offer the Stop Junk Mail Service to employees in their own homes at no cost to them. Your employees' home environmental savings will be counted under your company and will quickly add up to substantial and cost-effective results for your environmental stewardship program.
We don’t want to stop all direct mail. How does Eco-Cycle know which mail pieces we do and do NOT want?
You tell us. If it’s in the package you send us, we will opt you out, or take your employee's name off the direct mail company's mailing list. If it’s not, we won’t. We can even opt-out by piece by employee. For instance, one employee can opt out from receiving a particular catalog while the employee sitting right next door can choose to continue to receive the very same catalog.
