What methods do you find illegal? Where I am located 90% of homeowners have the mailboxes with the newspaper slots built in. These are NOT owned by the newspaper company and are ok to leave flyers in. They are not where postage mail goes. All sorts of companies use them for flyers.
I believe putting flyers inside mailboxes is illegal. I've put them between the flag and box, or a newspaper holder but there not to common around here. I've also slipped them inside newspaper baggies and tossed them, and I even put them inside the newspapers.
Our local towns weekly paper is small. And they will do the one time shot for anyone. Even the larger papers will do it. For they have been two different LCO that have used inserts in the larger cities papers this spring. I just saw the one insert from each company once.

just put them in the mailbox, anyone who cares if it's "legal" is a doofus. I've been putting flyers in the mailbox for years. F that. I bought my mailbox and put in on my front door. I own it. F the government. It's mine. It's not theirs, I don't care what they think. Never had a complaint. Yeah, I'm real scared of the postmaster. What a joke. Never once heard of anyone in "trouble" for doing it. If someone calls just say "oh sorry I didn't know". What are they gonna do, prosecute? The DA and any judge would laugh. wah wah wah it's illegal. Bullcrapa. You telling me law enforcement has nothing better to do? Crock of Shiznet.
Dude, DON"T listen to that guy from Long Island. Under law, a mailbox is owned by the government (the space in it). DO NOT put flyers in there it's considered a FEDERAL CRIME, just like hitting them with a baseball bat. Go to the door, push them in the crack of the door, hand them to people, whatever, but DO NOT put them in the mailbox
