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!
Yes, it’s a telephone directory and we use it to look up the telephone numbers of local businesses but it also has other vital uses.
The combination of a few less advertisers and a management decision to reduce the print size to infinitesimally small… has kept printing costs down but at the same time hugely reduced the size of the edition.

The yellow pages were the main source of information before the internet.  The yellow pages contain a wealth of information regarding different buisinesses, their numbers, and their locations and services. The most popular ad that the Yellow Pages offer is the business card, which includes all the basic information together with the link to the website plus the logo of the business.  This package can cost upwards of $395 per year.
Other offers that the Yellow Pages make available are the promotional display ad, which varies in size, as well as Sponsored Display Advertising, which can cost $495 to $795 annually.
For example, Metro Atlanta Yellow Pages offers advertisements that vary in rate depending on the amount of information or design in the ad.  The site offers up to 6 types of advertisement package that can accommodate the different needs of their clients. A sales representative would usually assist the advertiser in creating the design of the advertisement. The yellow pages will provide a 12 month contract for the advertisement which can be paid in full or monthly for the duration of the ad. The ad usually lasts for about a year and it can be renewed for a price that will be disclosed by the yellow pages. Since the Yellow Pages are becoming obsolete, consider other advertising alternatives online such as Pay Per Click advertising, search engine optimization, and more. 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. Making the print so very small will alienate the very demographic that still relies heavily on the directory – the aged or non technophile generation. Terry Fabrics in the UK (hello old home) recently invited me to be a part of their popular ‘designer insights’ series. 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. Does your local council provide a good…Zero Waste Week 2013 Welcome to the sixth National Zero Waste Week! 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.
As an anger management tool, ripping up the pages does not leave you with any lasting consequences and it along with others, makes for a remarkably comfortable and fully adjustable seat down in the stock room.
