(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is another in a series of recycling tips from the City of Covington's Neighborhood Services Department, Solid Waste & Recycling Division.)

COVINGTON, Ky. – Some people love the ad “circulars” delivered weekly to their doorstep. After all, they’re chock full of information about stores, sales, and services.

Note that opt-out requests can take up to 6-8 weeks before delivery stops. If the problems persist, email: Cheryl Dettone-White at

(We want to thank Valassis Communications for the information. Valassis delivers the ad circulars for RetailMeNot, a company that maintains a collection of coupon web sites. Local representatives for Valassis have been working diligently with the City of Covington to resolve any problems with the circulars.)
