Remember to opt-out of receiving printed phone books in Seattle

Do you receive numerous copies of yellow pages and phone books that you don’t open any more? If you live in Seattle, you can put your address in the city’s opt-out registry to prevent delivery of this unwanted paper.

Opt-out of receiving unwanted phone books in SeattleSeattle was the first city to pass this sort of opt-out law, and of course the Yellow Pages industry is fighting it in court, but with over 100,000 consumers signed up already, I can’t imagine that they are going to be able to stop this great new service.

You’ve got until May 16, which is tomorrow, to avoid this year’s Yellow Pages, so register today! I just did it myself and it only took a minute.
