has the postage predetermined to be charged at the contract price of the envelope and not a box.

True. Probably had no return address so the box went nowhere.

In my mind, USPS is an enabler for junk mail

Frankly, I don't want the post office determining what they think is worthy of delivery.

I get about a 1/2 mailbox full of mail daily. Out of all of that mail, less than five letters per month is real mail that I want. It's just ridiculous. All of it goes directly into the burn barrel.

I have a P.O. box and I complained about the junk mail several years ago. They said that they can put a "no boxholders" sign on my P.O. box and that would eliminate any junk. I haven't had any junk mail since. Maybe they can do it for a postal route box.

I guess the key point here is that I would like the junk mailers to bear the burden of any disposal costs. Let them feel the pain of disposal costs.

I get Junk mail, too. If there's a prepaid envelope inside, I use it to mail the ripped up junk mail back to them.

I need to start doing that, or mail another piece of junk mail to them from some other place.

Interesting. In my town recycling is mandatory and we all get to rent a separate recycling bin to be put on the curbside and emptied by the city every two weeks.

I'm kinda wondering why they don't just put a recycling bin next to the centralized mail box.
