Davis residents receive a large amount of junk mail.
Some of this is mailed, other publications are delivered to home driveways. Rather than throw this directly into the recycle, perhaps we can opt out of receiving the junk mail in the first place. Save trees, save energy, etc. It may be a good idea to actually look through the junk mail as it is filled with many coupons.

If a particular item was sent First Class, the recipient may mark that item as "Refused" and expect that it will be returned to sender with additional postage due. Many senders will clue in to the fact that you don't want their crap. If it's "Bulk" or "Standard", then you're still entitled to mark an item as "Refused" but it will only cost the Post Office money - the sender will never know.
For reference, see the USPS Domestic Mail Manual section DMM300, "Recipient Options: Refusal After Delivery" at http://pe.usps.gov/text/dmm300/508.htm#wp1044866
1.1.3 Refusal After Delivery
After delivery, an addressee may mark a mailpiece "Refused" and return it within a reasonable time, if the piece or any attachment is not opened. Mail that may not be refused and returned unopened under this provision may be returned to the sender only if it is enclosed in a new envelope or wrapper with a correct address and new postage. The following may not be refused and returned postage-free after delivery:
a. Pieces sent as registered, insured, certified, collect on delivery (COD), and return receipt for merchandise mail.
b. Response mail to the addressee's sales promotion, solicitation, announcement, or other advertisement that was not refused when offered to the addressee.
