Ban Phone Books; Who Needs Em!

We, the undersigned, call on municipalities and local governments around the country to establish ordinances to mandate Yellow Pages and White Pages only be delivered to home and offices that ask for them!

Why is this important?

The Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that 840,000 tons of telephone directories went into the municipal waste stream in 2008, the last time it was measured. Yellow Pages Goes Green ® (Yellow Pages Directory Inc.) has helped municipalities and local governments around the country establish ordinances to mandate Yellow and White Pages only be delivered to home and offices that ask for them. Municipalities and local government that provide trash services are extremely concerned about the landfill cost and why they have to absorb the cost of handling the telephone directories. Supports an "OPT-IN" process not Opt out. Congress: Tell phone companies such as Verizon and AT&T to cease delivery unless they are specifically requested. https://www.yellowpagesgoesgreen.org
