You get it all the time: telemarketers hassling you right as you sit down to dinner, evil spam in your email inbox, and the worst, piles of junk mail sent to you daily cluttering your counter tops and filling your trash can.

While you’re probably used to hanging up on obnoxious callers and emptying your bulk email folders on a weekly basis, what have you done to lessen your mail carrier’s load? In spirit of Earth Month, opt out of all those useless mailing lists that keep using our priceless trees to mail you useless flyers and junk mail. Here are our tips, but you can also post your tricks and solutions below.

* The Easy Way Out: Sign up with a company that handles the dirty work for you, like StoptheJunkMail.com. For a one-time fee of $19.95 they get you mailing lists, and, with every new subscription, they plant a tree. Similar sites charge about $10 including StopJunk.com and Private Citizen, Inc., which can fend off pesky telemarketers for an extra $20.

* The DIY Method: IdealBite.com points to the best spots online for getting rid of junk mail. It’s a little more involved, but it gets the job done for free. You can also check out EcoFuture.org for a step-by-step guide (beware it’s long) for how to get off everyone’s lists.

* Make Politics Work for You: Email your state legislator to promote a Do Not Junk Registry, similar to the Do Not Call Registry.
