When the new one arrived, I used to throw the old ones, complete with plastic packaging, into the dustbin.
My thoughts turned to the festering telephone directories in the corner of the room and I found myself wondering what the options were. Most areas in the UK have readily available recycling containers for paper and newspapers doted around and many areas have kerbside collections of paper. Yellow pages are more tricky fellas to dispose of as the UK has different facilities depending on area. You can put old Yellow Pages to good use by donating them to participating schools for the Yellow Woods Challenge. Some councils accept Yellow Pages at the kerbside, some have recycling facilities at the local civic amenities site (ours go in with cardboard at our local site). Finding the information for your area can be tricky, but there is a database on the yellow Pages site, although I’m not sure how up to date it is. Like the BT telephone book I decided that cancelling the Yellow pages was the way forward for us. The challenge with these directories is that there appears to be no centralised opt-out system like there is for junk mail. There is currently an online petition to call for an opt out system for all directories in the UK.
I have just ent BT an email to cancel our phonebook as it is still sat here in its platic wrap and last times we had to unwrap to put in the recycling. As I said on another posting, despite having cancelled both the yellow and white pages, they were both delivered! My anger at the Yellow pages resulted in me being given the hat of local Community Champion with a mission to help neighbours recycle rather than bin redundant Yellow Pages. Last week the White pages was squeezed through my letter box and luckily we were in to witness it. Poppy, although frustrating for you, it’s good when something like this moves us towards positive action. Your training course is evidently top notch – we’ll have to send more people to you! Have just sent an email to Thomson Directories ([email protected]) to cancel future deliveries. I had a letter from Thomson last week, which says they have been informed that I don’t wish to receive their directory, with a big sticker to put on the door to remind the deliverers when they come round.
The opt out for stopping directories on the web no longer exists but this is the advice from the Essex CC web page.
By not receiving telephone directories, you can help to save a vast amount of paper every year. Simply Being Mum: Found this post while trying to find a pasta brand that wraps in recyclable plastic!
Once upon a time, whenever a consumer needed to find a local restaurant, dry cleaner, plumber, TV repairman, florist or pretty much anything, they lugged out the big yellow book. The Yellow Pages concept became so popular that as business began to shift online in recent years, so did the yellow pages solutions. Just as consumers naturally turned to the big yellow book in print, they turned to the online version.
One of the things consumers often found frustrating about the Yellow Pages was its limited number of categories.
Businesses, on the other hand, found the concept of search engines to be quite a bit more daunting than the much simpler Yellow Pages. While getting a high ranking on Google for category keywords may be difficult, it is important to update a business’ online platform.

Having a social media presence across Google+, Facebook or Yelp is crucial for today’s local businesses, as customers want to feel connected and valued.
The key to getting the most from these online services is providing good products, value and customer service. The Piper Alpha disaster happened in July 1988 and is still the one of the costliest and deadliest series of mistakes, perhaps ever. In 2005, a careless Japanese broker meant to sell just one share of J-Com, a recruiting company, for 610,000 yen ($5041 US) but instead sold 610,000 shares at 1 yen. It's the little things that make a difference: in this case, the difference between the metric system and the American system. In 1992, the British arm of Hoover had a surplus of washing machines and vacuums, so they devised a promotional scheme to get rid of them: buy 100 Pounds worth of merch and get a 2 free round-trip tickets to anywhere in Europe or the US. This mistake is funny, but not to Gloria Quinan of Banner Travel Services, who placed an ad in the Yellow Pages (‘memba them?) in 1988, expecting it to read “Exotic Travel Services.” Instead, a typo made it read “Erotic Travel Services,” causing a flurry of inappropriate phone calls, and a loss of 80% of her business. For the past few years they have sat unloved and unwanted in the corner of the office until the new one has come along to replace it. I certainly would not have one delivered through choice – they are a totally wasted resource in this house. The Yellow woods challenge is run by the Woodlands Trust and local authorities across the UK.
In other areas the county council will take them back if you take them to their offices and in some areas Community Champions volunteer to be a drop off point for Yellow Pages.
However, a friend of mine gave me a telephone number to stop them completely which is 0800 671 444. 75,000 of tonnes of phonebooks are produced every year and many never make it out of the plastic before going straight back into the landfill. Is it easy to recycle your Yellow pages or how have you got on with opting out of receiving them – has it worked for you? How many times have you heard that or said…WEEE (electronic goods) Have you ever wondered what that symbol of a crossed out wheelie bin is on packaging…Talk Have you got a great idea about reducing waste? After being caught in the Boscastle floods in 2004, our family begun a journey to respect and promote the importance of Earth's fragile ecosystem, that focussed on reducing waste.
Responding my crys of woe, junior grabbed the offending book and ran dwon the road to the departing deliverer to give it back!
The school collections for yellow pages are a good way to use them up, but stopping at source is better. You’ve provided a wonderful service to your local community and the environment by being a Champion.
I wrote to congratulate him and he was concerned that the opt out people would go into their office on Monday morning to see 1000 new opt out mails LOL!
Looked out of the bedroom window this morning and I see yellow dotted around everywhere I look! Some companies seem to absorb me constantly returning things to them – BT is one of the worst offenders AND they keep increasing their prices.
Known as the Yellow Pages, the big yellow book provided a complete listing, by category, of all of the businesses in the consumer’s local area. Sometimes it was difficult to determine in exactly what category to search for a particular product or service, whereas with Google and other search engines, they could simply type in a few words and be taken to the right place. Once this is taken care of, it’s possible to augment this presence by purchasing advertising. Particularly, small businesses can gain more valuable (and free) advertising through social media than through any paid source. While it might be cost-effective for some types of businesses, your primary focus should be on your online presence and customer interactions if you want to build long-term customer relationships.

Even though the trade was larger than their outstanding shares and the broker tried to cancel 3 times, it still went through. The software engineers wrote the program for this Mars Orbiter to use pounds of force, but NASA assumed this calculation had been converted to newtons for space; it hadn't. The problem was these airline tickets were many more times expensive than than Hoover's "sucky" products.
They were sent the measurements of railway platforms from RFF – a separate bureaucracy that run the trains in France – and SNCF failed to check to verify if these numbers were accurate.
Government was allowed to take home a laptop with sensitive information about military personnel.
An extra comma in a contract between two Canadian companies was used as a way to make it null-and-void. School design art projects with old Yellow Pages and are in with the chance of winning money for their school, along with donations to the Woodland Trust for tree planting.

Inspired by the beauty and resourcefulness of this wonderful planet, I have published numerous magazine articles on green issues and the author of four books.
I saw a copy on a doorstep and finally remembered to look it up to see if they have anything to say about it. Customer review sites such as Yelp can make or break a business, so when a Yelp page is managed carefully, it can be invaluable to a local business.
When the satellite was launched, there were many warning signs, including a need to make dozens of adjustments during flight and the Orbiter ended up being destroyed when it flew too low in the Martian atmosphere.
The company was caught off guard by the overwhelming demand – some 200,000 people ordered Hoover's cheapest vacuum at 120 Pounds and the company had to pay workers overtime to keep up with the orders. It turned out they were a few centimeters short, resulting ordering trains that were too wide to fit. That's because Ronald Wayne gave back his stake in the multi-billion dollar company back in its earliest days in 1976.
Chaos on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and a loss of $225 million for Mizuho Securities Co., wiping out its profits for the previous fiscal year.
Hoover was soon in the hole for ?30 million ($74 Million) to book all the promised flights. The French Minister called it a “comic drama” and 1,300 platforms will have to be adjusted to the tune of €50 million ($68 million). It turns out not only was this data unencrypted, but it contained 2.2 million names, Social Security numbers and birthdays of both active and retired persons.
When a technician, who was not informed of the maintenance, pressed the start button the whole thing went KA-BOOM, killing 167 workers and costing $3.4 billion in damages. Several top executives lost their jobs and the European unit was sold to a rival appliance company. A veteran's group sued for $26 billion, but the Department of Veterans Affairs eventually settled in 2009 for a lesser-but-still-expensive $20 million. He was supposed to be the “adult-in-chief” and settle any disputes between the other two, but Wayne felt the pair were too young and inexperienced and feared that the company would go under and he'd be liable.
