San Jose launches junk mail reduction program

SAN JOSE, Calif.

Catalog Choice is an online mail preference service that allows San Jose residents and businesses to "opt out" of receiving unwanted store catalogs, phone books, coupons and credit solicitations.

San Jose residents recycle more than 74,000 tons of junk mail and mixed paper annually. About 17 trees can be saved for every ton of junk mail not produced, according to city officials.
