Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) is an advertising division of the United States Postal Service (USPS) in partnership with Taradel and the DMA. Mail pieces from this program may also be delivered with the ECRW or ECRWSS code. ECRWSS stands for Enhanced Carrier Route Walk Sequence Saturation It usually appears above the “address” line as: ECRWSSEDDM. Instead of your actual name and address, it will simply say “Postal Customer” or “Residential Customer” where the address line would be.

The topics will range broadly and cover important topics such as design, sales copy, targeting, best practices, and tips and tricks.
The original opt-out mechanisms are now defunct and never worked in the first place, leaving no known way to unsubscribe or opt-out. Here is an actual explanation from a representative of the DMA (the direct marketing group partnered with the USPS on this program:
“The problem that we had was getting the Postal Service to promote the removal service to the local businesses that send out that type of mail to the local addresses.
Since the Postal service did not encourage the local advertisers to utilize the removal service against their mailing lists (to remove the addresses) the service was ineffective and had to be discontinued.”
We are trying to change this by compelling the USPS to offer an opt-out method. Please voice your choice:

Here is the reason why we cannot help. We tried to get ahead of the curve when created Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) (in conjunction with the US Postal Service) about three or so years ago.
The problem that we had was getting the Postal Service to promote the removal service to the local businesses that send out that type of mail to the local addresses.
Since the Postal service did not encourage the local advertisers to utilize the removal service against their mailing lists (to remove the addresses) the service was ineffective and had to be discontinued.
You will have to go back to the Postal Service to get them to contact those local businesses to ask them take care of your removal request directly.
Sorry that we could not be of direct assistance to you.

Letter statement from the USPS regarding EDDM junk mail
Dear Mr. XXXXXX:
This is in response to your letter to the Office of the Consumer Advocate, with regard to your request to be provided instruction on how to have your name removed from the Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) mailing list. The Alabama District Consumer and Industry Contact Office was asked to investigate the matter and provide a response to you.
We regret you did not receive a response to the certified letter you mailed to the Mail Preference Service, also known as Direct Marketing Association (DMA). To obtain more information about the service they provide we called the Consumer Creditor’s Reporting Industry at 1-888-567-8688. This is an automated line that gives customers the choice of having their names and addresses removed from pre-approved mailing lists for up to 5 years. It advises customers to go online to
www.optoutprescreen.com and choose to opt-out or opt-in of the mailing list programs.
Another resource advised customers can visit http://www.dmachoice.org to request their names be removed from EDDM mailing lists.
Additionally, it was suggested you may want to write to the credit bureaus listed below.

As information, the Postal Service has no control over the selling of mailing lists, and we cannot require a mailer to remove names from their lists. However, we do wish to help customers by providing the information listed above.
Since management at the Green Springs Carrier Facility is responsible for finalizing delivery of EDDM in your delivery zone, they have been asked to share your request not to receive EDDM mail with the carriers on your route. Although we cannot guarantee you will not receive some unwanted mail, this will serve as a notice to delivery personnel EDDM mail should not be delivered to your address.
I hope this response is helpful to you. If further assistance is needed, please contact Inez Burden, Complaints and Inquiry Clerk, at 205-521-0374.
