Here's how to stop unwanted yellow pages deliveries to your home or business in a few easy steps.

    Read our step-by-step instructions on how to use Seattleā€™s Stop Phone Books website:

    For your phone book preferences to take effect in 2011, you will need to submit requests by the following deadlines. Requests submitted after the deadline will take effect starting in 2012.

    • May 16, 2011: DEX Seattle Metro and DEX Seattle Metro Plus
    • September 23, 2011: Greater Seattle Yellowbook
    • October 9, 2011: Seattle - Superpages and SnoKing-Seattle

    CatalogChoice will track complaints for the City and yellow pages publishers will be held accountable, and even fined, if they fail to honor timely opt-out requests from Seattle residents and businesses.

    CatalogChoice, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, operates the Phone Books Opt-Out Registry and provides some stop junk mail services for the City of Seattle under contract. The Phone Books Opt-Out Registry is funded by a fee charged to yellow pages publishers.
