Check with your local government (i.e., city, county). Every jurisdiction has different rules.

Technically, no, but good luck finding someone who cares. Placing anything without a stamp in a mailbox (any mailbox) is a violation of federal postal law. The USPS considers your mailbox to be a part of their system, and placing a letter in it without a stamp is considered use of their system without paying for it. Also, some legal scholars think this is a violation of the tenant's privacy, since the mailbox is part of the apartment. If the flyer left is rude or obnoxious, a judge might rule it a breach of quiet enjoyment. Otherwise, you'll be hard pressed to find a postal inspector who cares, or a judge who cares either.

Yes, as long as it isn't stolen mail. No, it is illegal, even to place a flyer on the flag. The mailbox is US Government property.

The kids read about the food drive on a flyer tucked in the newspaper. He distributed a flyer about his lawn care services hoping to earn money over the summer.

i am a flyer and my backpsot taught me how to catch. instead of just placing your arms under the flyer, try to scoop your flyer underneath her armpits.
