At Last, You Can Send the Yellow Pages to Hell

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

At bloody last, now you can opt-out of delivery of those useless volumes of bound dead trees and CO2 known as the Yellow Pages. I would rather kill them all, but this is a step in the right direction.

The Yellow Pages Association has decided it's time stop pissing off most people with their stupid publication. They have opened a new site called National Yellow Pages Consumer Choice & Opt-Out Site, which contains some useless sections as "Download Our Sustainability Report" (should be called We are a total waste), "How to Recycle your Yellow Pages Directory" (just don't make us recycle this crap), and "The Yellow Pages Directory Facts" (fact: nobody cares).


Actually, the only section you should care about is the opt-out one, which is the only thing that makes sense in an age where you can use internet—even to use the Yellow Pages themselves. So go it, enter your zip code and fill out the registration form. I know, even opting-out of the Yellow Pages is annoying, but it's better than actually receiving them. To avoid any potential spam, I recommend you to create a mail account just for registration—say, Or just use to get a temporary mail account.


Don't forget to pass this around. If a few million people opt-out, perhaps that will send a definitive message that we don't care about this obsolete book that not even the hipsters want in their homes. Go here to opt-out now.

Update: The site appears to be failing because of the demand, so keep trying.
