How to stop receiving the big yellow book

Posted on : 23-12-2010 | By : Sumina | In : Austin, Productivity


Drop the weight!

For most of use who are on the internet 24/7, when we come home one day and find that stack of yellow and white pages left on our doorstep, are left wonder who really uses these anymore (Other than maybe a door stop)? And maybe you think to yourself, ‘I wish I could just not get these anymore’. Well you can unsubscribe!

Here’s how to do it in Austin:

  • You can call this number to opt out of the ATT book: 1-866-329-7118. Some people have reported that it only took 5 minutes, while someone else said it took them 15 minutes. 
  • Call 1-800-929-3556 to opt out of the Yellow Book.
  • You can now recycle the books in the big blue single-stream recycling bins as well

Another handy resource is Earth911.com which can provide info on where to recycle lots of things. Yay!

Go forth, recycle, and be good to the earth. :)
