How To Stop Receiving Unsolicited Yellow Page Books

SHARE with Friend


Do those yellow page books that land in your driveway or doorstep typically get sent directly to the recycling center or local garbage dump?

You're not alone.

If you are one of the many people who would like to see the unsolicted yellow books disappear from your driveway, it is becoming a bit easier. Courtesy of the Internet, of course!

While many believe unsolicted deliveries should be Opt-In and not Opt-Out, local area residents do at least have the choice of opting out for a select group of book deliveries.

The downside is providing some personal information via mandatory registration.

We were able to opt out using a throw away e-mail address used for just such times, a couple initials for a name and our actual address.

The process provided was quick and easy. (Not always the case opting out of services online)

If the process works as suggested, it will be the end of seeing unsolicted Surewest Directories, AT&T and Yellow Book from littering our driveways. Not all directories were available through the process and you may need to contact other directories directly.

While not the ideal solution that Opt-In would provide, it just may keep our driveway clear of those pesky and unnecessary books we used before the days of the Internet.
