From the Wellesley Recycling & Disposal Facility:
Junk mail pesters many residents of the U.S., but it also plagues the landfills. Junk Mail Produces 1 Billion Pounds of Landfill Each Year.
According the U S Postal Service, “More than 100 BILLION pieces of junk mail per year pass through the Post Office”. Junk Mail Kills 2.6 Million Trees Every Year. For these reasons and more, junk mail should be recycled in the Magazines, Mixed Paper, and Junk Mail bins along the recycling wall.
