National Yellow Pages Consumer Choice Opt-Out SiteEvery year I receive four different phone books that I never use. I’ve been trying to reduce the amount of mail we receive, so I was excited to learn from Madison Consumer that I can opt out of the phone book distribution list!

The process is similar to the do not call list. Simply enter your contact information on the National Yellow Pages Consumer Choice & Opt-Out Site. On this site you will see a list of available phone books for your area and you choose which ones, if any, you receive.

If you choose to receive a phone book, please recycle it! For more information, see the Eau Claire County Recycling website.

Thanks to Madison Consumer for this post.
