Local Search Association and Cleveland City Council Raise Awareness for Consumer Choice Website
October 13, 2011 | Contributed by: Neg Norton
Earlier this year, the Local Search Association and the Association of Directory Publishers launched an upgraded consumer choice website, www.yellowpagesoptout.com, which makes it even easier for people across the country to choose which phone directories are or are not delivered to their homes.
As part of our ongoing commitment to generating visibility for this valuable resource, today we joined with Councilman Matt Zone of the Cleveland City Council to issue a news release to Cleveland media and residents informing them of the program and providing additional information on how to contact local publishers to limit or stop directory delivery.
I applaud Councilman Zone for his leadership in working directly with directory publishers to raise awareness for www.yellowpagesoptout.com. As a chair of the National League of Cities’ Energy, Environment and Natural Resources (EENR) Committee, I hope his commitment to this program will resonate with other local leaders across the country.
I’m eager to continue to work with other state and local municipalities to address any of their questions about phone book delivery and consumer choice options. By partnering together, we can ensure that phone books are only delivered to those who want to receive them.
