On January 25, 2009, the Seattle City Council passed, by an 8-1 vote, a resolution asking the state of Washington to create a ‘Do Not Mail Registry’ so state residents can stop receiving unwanted promotional mail, (a.k.a. junk mail). The non-binding resolution is similar to a San Francisco resolution passed in March 2009.
A ‘Do Not Mail Registry’ would allow individuals to opt out of commercial junk mail. The direct mail industry has opposed such registries in the past saying that they "ban" junk mail. A registry would allow people to continue to receive direct mail if they want it.
