You Can Stop LA Times Local Values Delivery

**Update as of July 2013**  Please call 800-528-4637, x72655 to be removed from the the LA Times Local Values mailing list.

I have just recently moved back to California so I am experiencing the joy of stopping junk mail all over again! Because I am now in a different state I am also coming across mailers I have not seen before. The latest item to hit the mailbox is the Los Angeles Times Local Values.

This little gem is delivered every Friday, and according to the LA Times Media Kit website, it is distributed to 95% of households in the LA market or about 4.4 million homes. It is also described as a 4 page wrap with display ads and included inserts.

In order to stop the Local Values delivery, you will need to call 626-472-5242. This is a recorded line where you are asked to either have your named added or removed from the mailing list along with the address and zip code. Make sure you let them know you want to be removed from receiving the Local Values flyer.

The recording also states it takes about 2 weeks for it to work its way through production. I’m not sure if that means 2 weeks for the address to be removed or 2 weeks to stop receiving the flyers. My assumption is the latter, but I will provide an update as soon as I know!

    I have called about 10 times to remove my name from the list but to no avail. I even emailed Jeff Young at the LA Times who is responsible for this, and he promised to have me removed….and I am STILL recieving these ever Friday…what else is there to do?

      I’m sorry to hear you’re having difficulty getting removed from the list. When you receive the LA Times Local Values every Friday does it include your address? I’m just wondering if maybe the post office is delivering a set not realizing you had requested to not receive it. Let me know! When I called the number it was literally 2 weeks and I haven’t received it since.

    LA times continues to throw this at my house every week and calling the number does nothing. I even have a “no soliciting/no fliers” sign posted on my front door but still they litter my driveway with this every week. It always goes strait into the bin. such a waste.

      I called this 800 number a few times already and I still get the rubbish from them!

      I think that they are doing constitutes littering. I’m calling my city police on this.
