How to Opt Out of Getting Yellow Pages in Australia


February 2nd

Every year they drop the yellow pages on my doorstep and every year I’m filled with bitter disappointment for the sheer volume of waste this bygone era of information delivery has wrought on the world.

I wish yellow pages physically printed forest destroyers would cease entirely, but I’ve found out how to opt out of delivery for a 3 year period :

1. Go to https://www.directoryselect.com.au/ds/

2. Put your postcode in the Cancel section

3. Give them all your personal details, first born child etc.

4. Enter ridiculously hard Captcha Code

5. Click the “activation” link in the email they send you.

BAM. No more yellow pages. And good riddance.
