Don't count on automatically receiving a Verizon white-pages telephone directory next year. The state Public Utility Commission on Thursday approved Verizon's plan to halt distribution of its white-pages book of residential and business phone listings to customers in the state in January, unless they ask for one.
The company will continue to provide subscribers with a book containing yellow pages of business listings, consumer information and government contacts, also known as blue pages. The change reflects the explosion in cell phone use at the expense of land lines and traces technological advances that made adding machines, telephone booths, road maps, videocassette players and other consumer-oriented devices obsolete. Verizon, which distributed 12 million books of white pages annually in the state, estimates the move will save 2,200 tons of paper yearly in Pennsylvania.

The company circulates about 160,000 white-pages directories in the Scranton area, he said. Verizon also plans to halt unsolicited distribution of white pages in New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Florida.
