Opt Out for Yellow Pages

 

If you're sick and tired of receiving the printed yellow pages, there is a new opt out page available.

http://www.yellowpagesoptout.com/

Edit - apparently the site is being inundated, so if you can't get it to work give it a couple of days.

Thanks ....

... for the tip! smile

Interesting

Interesting. I'm interested in hearing how well this works.

What worries me is that these gazillion versions of yellow pages aren't delivered by the USPS, UPS, etc. to specific addresses, but at least in my area are delivered a lot like newspapers: a person with a car in need of some extra cash is hired to do the deliveries and he/she drives up and down each street in their assigned neighborhood throwing a plastic-wrapped yellow pages book onto each driveway. I have a hard time thinking that all/(most?) of these drivers are going to worry about carrying a list of addresses to avoid a thrown book and that they'll do whatever's easiest and fastest for them, which I think would be to throw at each address.

Anyone else with their thoughts?

While we are on the subject

While we are on the subject to opt out don't forget about the phone calls from the solicitors https://www.donotcall.gov/

I've registered a line in the US & another in Canada https://www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca/insnum-regnum-eng and have cut about 99% of telemarketer calls.

Funny I registered my home & cell phone on the lists and the only Company that calls is Bell Canada wanting me to come back.

And let's not forget the letters they send us on a regular basis. Unfortunately they're exempted for 18 months after that hopefully it'll stop or else evil

no opt out in Seattle

An ordinance was passed for an opt out in October. YB seeks a decision in the court. "Deprives a business of their lively hood." It really was not a ban. It was a steep licensing fee for distribution.
I wish they would go the way of the Sears catalog. If you want one, buy one. Coupons inside.

It would be nice

We get about 4 different versions of the yellow pages...have not used one in years.

I would hope there would be an opt-in rule rather than out...but I suppose it would cost a lot to print the single copy my Mom wants mrgreen

CD

Last year when I got my Yellow Pages, they had a CD inside that held evereything in the book.
Got rid of the book and kept the CD Takes up much less room.
