YP understands that as consumer habits change, so does their need for print directories. Anyone wishing to limit, or stop, delivery of directories should visit www.YellowPagesOptOut.com or call 1-866-329-7118 to submit a request to stop the future delivery of directories from all directory publishers. Please note that requests take several weeks to process, so there is a possibility that changes in delivery preferences for directories approaching or currently in distribution may not be reflected until the next directory delivery cycle. The site is free and information provided through the site will not be shared with anyone other than directory publishers for the purpose of updating distribution lists.
