Any way of stopping yearly deliveries of yellow pages / telephone directories

Mine just go straight in the recycling bin as do most others I suspect. Surely there must be a way of opting out of this complete waste of resources?

I cant imagine how many trees were felled to make the 30 Million phone books that get delivered each year! The council recycling costs must go through the roof when these get sent out.

Absolutely spot on I wonder the same every year, along with the Thompson directory straight in the bin, what a waste.

Who needs a hard copy of paper things these days.

Should be opt in or otherwise you don't get one.

Keeps people in jobs and costs you nothing, so why end it.

I would imagine it is printed on recycled paper (not sure though) so not many trees might of copt out.
Also on the recycling part, can't see why council costs would go up as scrap/waste paper is a nice little earner.

I think you'll find it costs councils money to recycle paper. They certainly dont make money out of it!

And there is only a certain amount of times paper can be recycled so it costs resources in the long run. In any case, I think (but am not sure) that recycling paper uses more energy resources than producing new paper! :w00t:

Wow, what an outdated way of thinking, do you drop litter in the streets to 'keep roadsweepers in a job'?

Yellow Pages are completely useless to 90%+ of the population.

I have worked in the paper and printing industry for many years and every company i have worked for make money out of their scrap, i have heard figures of between £25-£100 per tonne depending on quality. So why doesn't the concil make use of this facillity.

I only seem to use these when either:
a) There is a powercut (and hence can't use the PC) and I need a telephone number for the electricity company.
b) The phone line isn't working (hence can't use the internet) and I need a number for the telephone company to report the fault.
