You can now opt out of junk mail

From NY1:

In an effort to reduce waste, the city says its "Stop Junk Mail" campaign will benefit New Yorkers and the environment.

The Department of Sanitation is partnering with the GreeNYC program to promote an anti-junk mail service.

On the program's website, you can opt out of a number of unsolicited mailing lists at once.

You can create an account and unsubscribe from junk mail lists at nyc.gov/greenyc.

Can we opt out of the "information" junk mail our elected officials keep sending us before elections?

Include campaign literature? A friend of mine on the East Side received 56 pieces of oversized mail on the recent Assembly race in a 10 day period.

Great to see yow all that campaign money donated is being used to benefit the community.

The link actually does not work, you need to use https://nyc.catalogchoice.org/login

As usual with NYC, this site seems like more of hassle. It is not a very well done site and a convoluted sign-up. You actually have to punch in every company that sends a catalog, etc. as opposed to just clicking a button and remove you from lists. Total waste. The ironic thing too is you have to unclick boxes to not receive crap from that organization.

You are better off using National Do Not Mail List, which I use,is more simple and actually does stop the majority of junk mail.

Since there is already a nation site out there to do this, why does NYC even bother with this.

the purpose is for a photo op and to reinforce in people's minds that nothing gets done unless a pol is there to take credit, no matter how stupid.

they get away with this travesty because even stupider people will fall for it.
