Reject mail for unknown users at the MTA level (sendmail, postfix, etc)

MailScanner then won't have to process any mail for unknown users.

Recently, it seems, we are getting inundated with mail going to bogus
addresses for our domain from bogus senders. Running MailScanner with
postfix and SpamAssassin. Is there something I can do with Postfix to stop
all of the garbage from being processed by MailScanner? I'd love to ban this
stuff before it even hits the server.

Many thanks in advance.
