Say ‘No!’ to junk mail with new King County EcoConsumer online service

King County residents can now make unwanted mail go away with just a few clicks on their computers.

The King County EcoConsumer program has joined forces with non-profit Catalog Choice to provide a convenient website, kingcounty.catalogchoice.org, where residents can opt out of thousands of different catalogs, coupons, credit offers, circulars, newsletters, other junk mailings and unwanted phone books.

This service is prominently featured on the EcoConsumer website at www.KCecoconsumer.com. In addition to making mail and phone book opt-outs easier, this partnership will allow King County to make solid estimates about the amount of paper waste being diverted from its regional landfill. Using ZIP codes, Catalog Choice will provide to the County data on the amount of mail being reduced and the number of County residents participating.
