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! Description Use the Yellow Pages - South Africa's most complete online business directory - to find local business information fast! It took Bruce Carter a few moments to recall the last time he cracked open the Yellow Pages telephone directory.
For Dan Gunn of the Victoria Advanced Technology Council, ita€™s close to a decade since he last dug out the iconic book with the walking fingers logo. This is the reality for the printed version of the directory, which hit doorsteps around Victoria this month. The change in usage that has people searching online for numbers and listings, businesses looking to advertise through other media and a reduced demand for land lines has meant the bulky, printed Yellow Pages directory is shrinking in terms of importance a€” and in size. According to Fiona Story of Yellow Pages Group, the company is in the midst of a major transition. Story said online revenue, $367 million in 2012, now represents 38 per cent of the companya€™s total revenues and 61 per cent of their existing clients have purchased digital products with them. Story said it will get smaller still as the company is looking at reformatting the printed version. In larger centres, the Yellow Pages already have moved to making residential directories a€?by requesta€? only and in other centres they offer an a€?opt outa€? program so residents can ask not to have one delivered.
Despite that reduced demand, the province will have a new area code introduced later this year. Hall said the new code will likely go unnoticed at first as it will be assigned to people with tablet computers or using smart cards to connect to the Internet.

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. Turns out it was probably just over two months ago that the CEO of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce needed to find a listing. So there should be little surprise that Victoriaa€™s directory for 2013 is a shadow of its former self. There has been a 7.7 per cent drop in requests for residential land lines alone in that time. We find young people go wireless out of the gate, but they do pick up a land line later in life,a€? he said. 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.
