I think it’s been a good 10 years since I’ve last opened a Yellow Pages book. Such a waste of resources for most people who are online. Now there’s an easy way to opt out along with adjusting other mail preferences. Be patient with the yellow pages site, it keeps going down because of excessive hits from other equally anxious folks who want to stop the paper waste.
So as of today, residents who prefer to let their cursor do the walking can visit a new, nationwide web site — YellowPagesOptOut.com — which will let them choose which local business directories they do or do not wish to receive.
– To opt out of directory delivery, visit YellowPagesOptOut.com
– To opt out of direct mail or e-mail delivery, visit DMAChoice.org
– To opt out of credit card solicitation, visit OptOutPreScreen.com
