Paul from Middlsex wrote to us to say:
“I’ve just received another Yellow Pages directory through my letterbox and it is now in the recycling bin. It upsets me to have to keep dealing with all the waste paper that comes through my door – even though I have a sticker on the letterbox that reads: “no unsolicited or junk mail”.
“This prompted me to send a comment to Yellow Pages on their website below, although I guess they won’t respond. I thought I’d also search on-line to see if there was anything else I could do to stop waste being pushed through my door.”
Paul’s letter to Yellow Pages:
Hi Yellow Pages,
I have just received your directory through the letterbox, even though my letterbox has a sticker reading: “no unsolicited mail”.
I use your services on-line, but it upsets me to keep receiving your directories through the door – I feel it is a waste of paper and a huge drain on the environment.
Unfortunately the directory is now in the recycling bin. I am also frustrated that it has now become my problem to depose of the directory.
Can you advise what else I can do to stop the Yellow Pages directory being delivered to my house and what Yellow Pages are doing to help reduce its impact on the environment?
Can anyone advise Paul how to stop reciving Yellow Pages junk mail?
