Opt Out and Recycling Phone Books

There are several companies that distribute phone books to homes and businesses in Sequim.  If you would like to opt out of having phone books delivered, publishers have collectively created a consumer opt-out program that allows you to opt out of all or a selection of directories delivered within the zip code.  Visit https://www.yellowpagesoptout.com.  The site will require registration including your address, telephone number and email.  

If you are getting rid of unwanted phone books, please recycle them with "mixed paper."
