It's called market forces, Teresa dear. If junk mail were abolished we wouldn't be able to afford a postal service.
Perhaps that would make you happier.
In the meantime, the rest of us are grateful to have a postal service - for all its faults, so please do not be so inconsiderate as to snarl the whole system up by putting rubbish into the letter boxes. If it is junk mail from the council (of which there is plenty of unsolicited mail, planning applications etc.), I hope you don't drop the envelopes on the street as it's the easiest way to return it to them. So don't do the same to the post office.
[Edited to give some coherency to the last paragraph.]
