Paper advertisements

I suppose the amount of advertising that is delivered to our house is not actually that large. A couple of flyers each day is about the norm. Still, I can't help wondering about, for example, Verizon. For over a year, week in and week out, they've sent a flyer to our house advertising their FIOS program. It's still not available at our location according to their website, but this doesn't seem to deter them from wanting us to join their as of now fictitious offering. I guess I should be glad we have a pretty good recycling program around here...

I think you can opt out of circulars, but it is an all-or-nothing deal, so if for example you sign up for a coupon mailing from BB&B, then it undoes your opt-out. On the other hand, I have learned that it is not possible to opt out of mail addressed to the people who used to own your house (over a year ago) even if they are now deceased. No matter how many times you write "deceased - return to sender" and call the number to cancel catalogs, you will continue to receive mail daily for those people. Annoying.

These aren't addressed to anyone, they're part of the advertising package along with the grocery ads.
