CPUC orders Verizon to stop white pages delivery


The "opt-in" provision was approved as a way to cut paper waste.

"You see it right up front, you have layers and layers of these phone books and nobody uses them and invariably they end up is in the garbage can and that's something that should never happen," said St. Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco.

Yee wants to expand the opt-in change to all white page phone book producers throughout the state. Yee plans to reintroduce a bill vetoed last year that would make it easier for residents to also opt out of yellow page directories.
