I couldn’t find a direct email for anyone at Yellow Pages, so I sent this to the “comments and suggestions” section of the website.
I am hoping that I will receive a swift and sensible answer:
I am interested in ensuring that I am not delivered any more issues of the Yellow Pages print edition.
This is for two reasons; firstly I feel that the environmental impact of producing and delivering these issues (despite the recycling) is uncalled for and secondly; The implications of these deliveries helps you to boost the cost of running ads in your editions, this isn’t such a concern to large advertisers, however impacts small to medium businesses, I feel this is not morally acceptable.
I was provided the number 1800 810 211 as the line through which to cancel the deliveries and provided this to my circle of friends (all of whom have not used the print edition for years).
Several of these people were told upon calling that they could not cancel their deliveries as they did not custom order them.
I look forward to your response as I am keen to find out how Australian’s are able to express their right to opt out of unsolicited mail.
