How many pounds of junk mail does the average American receive a year?
That is 5 to 10 items of junk mail a day. And not only does the average American get 41 pounds of junk mail a year, paper takes up nearly 40% of our landfills! Imagine what we could do with all that space in our landfills! We could finally build that trash-can theme park! (Or keep trees and other plants and animals alive and conserve water or whatever) Source: 41pounds.org
