Find phone numbers online!

Calling on You

Millions upon millions of phone books are delivered to U.S households every year. This equates to hundreds of thousands of pounds of paper being thrown out annually. If you want to stop this senseless waste, here's how to opt out of your current scheduled delivery of paper phonebooks while still maintaining your ability to find local businesses, services, and individuals.

  • To opt out of future deliveries of your local phone book, simply look for the number of the publisher in the book itself. Call the number and tell them that you want to opt out of future directories.
  • Other opt out options include signing up to be removed from local distribution lists through sites such as YellowPagesGoesGreen and Paperless Petion.
  • To recycle old, unused phonebooks, simply place them in your curbside-recycling bin. In some regions, separate recycling is required and can be found at Keep America Beautiful.
  • Use online phone directories. There are many great online resources for finding local businesses, services, and individuals.

Yellowpages.com is the official online edition of the YellowPages.
