The city of Berkeley is about to get more aggressive in helping you control the junk mail you get.

Each year it's estimated Americans get 100 billion pieces of junk mail. Tuesday, Berkeley entered into an agreement with Catalog Choice to make it easier for you to opt out from getting unwanted mail.

The idea is to reduce the amount of waste in our landfills and bring the city closer to its zero waste goal. All you have to do is go to

"You identify the company that you want to stop the mail from, and enter your name and address, and the customer number and hit submit and we take care of the rest of it," said Chuck Teller of Catalog Choice.

You don't have to be a resident of the city of Berkeley to take advantage of this free service.
