The New Phone Books Are Here? Not Necessarily!

Posted By on Wed, Feb 2, 2011 at 11:00 AM

While Navin Johnson was awfully excited about the new phone books, I end up walking them from my front door directly to the recycle bin these days. That would be wasteful enough with one phone book, but for some reason, a new one seems to come every few months now, wrapped in a non-recyclable yellow plastic bag that I have to take inside.

I'm aware this is a wildly privileged complaint, verging on white whine, and that some people have real problems, but the reason I mention it is to mention that there's finally a solution: Yellowpagesoptout.com.

The site makes you jump through some hoops, but in about five minutes, you should theoretically be off the delivery route for the various phone book companies, although time will tell. I'll just be happy if I get fewer giant blocks of paper that I have no intention of using.
