Can I throw away mail that is not mine?

Throwing away someone else’s mail is a felony — here’s how to get rid of it legally. Sick of opening up your mailbox only to find mail for the people who used to live there? Here’s how to stop it — write “Return to Sender” on the mail, or “No longer at this address.” Also, mark out any bar codes.

Where do I put my name on a envelope?

The stamp or postage is placed in the upper right-hand corner of the envelope….The address you are mailing to should be written as follows:Recipient’s name.Business’s name (if applicable)Street address (with apartment or suite number)City, State and ZIP code (on the same line)*Country*

What do I do with post without return address?

If there’s no return address or franking mark on the item, we’ll send it to the National Returns Centre (NRC). We’ll then open the item to try and find a sender’s address. If we do, and the contents aren’t newspapers, magazines or advertising materials, we’ll then return it to the sender.
