The companies listed are some of the largest direct mailers. Some may not be present in your location. I’ve tried to identify their promotional names, as that may be easier for recognition. If you like the company’s products or services, then it may make sense to stay on their list. But, if you’re just throwing the items away, a better use of your time is to get off their mailing list.
Some companies are good about removal instructions. They make it easy to find the info on the web page. Other sites bury the info. One of the places to start is the site’s Privacy page and look for the terms “opt out” or removal.
