Junk Mail Program
What Is Junk Mail?
All mail that you do not want to continue to receive is Junk Mail: magazines, letters or packages. Mail for faculty or staff that are no longer associated with Yale also qualifies as Junk Mail.
If letters and catalogs are properly addressed, they go directly to the departments. It is up to each department to decide if these items are wanted or unwanted. Simply tossing out unwanted mail will not solve the problem.
- All unwanted U.S. mail (letters, catalogs, packages) need only be marked "NO" or "CANCEL" in the vicinity of the address label (but not on it) and returned to Campus Mail – you do not even need to use a campus envelope.
- OR Tape a Junk Mail sign to a white mail bucket and just toss the unwanted mail into the bucket. No need to write on each letter. Be careful not to toss any live mail into this bucket. When the bucket is full, tape the Junk Mail sign securely to the top of the bucket to keep all mail inside. Place the bucket with your outgoing campus mail and our driver will pick up the bucket with your next mail delivery.
We have seen a significant decrease in unwanted mail coming in to Yale and, with your help, we are looking forward to even more of a reduction in this mail.
Send your unwanted mail to:
