Junk mail at French second-home

I get a lot of junk mail at my second home. Is there anything I can do?

You should put a label on your mailbox with the wording “Stop Pub” (stop commercial leaflets).

This is promoted by the Environment Ministry and widely recognised as A label can be printed off here – ecologique-solidaire.gouv.fr/stop-pub – and it also includes wording to say you do still want any free information from your local council.
