Yellow Pages Group Reminds St. John’s Residents of Print Opt-Out Program

Opt-out period for 2011 distribution of Yellow Pages™ directory in St. John’s
closing on April 22, 2011

St. John’s (Newfoundland and Labrador), March 29, 2011 Yellow Pages Group (YPG) is reminding St. John’s residents that they have until Friday, April 22, 2011 to opt-out of receiving their 2011 Yellow Pages print directory, to be distributed beginning in June in the St. John’s area. Through Yellow Pages Group’s Custom Delivery Program , residents can easily remove their names from the print directory delivery list.

“Our goal is to ensure that the print directory is delivered only to those who wish to receive them,” said Annie Marsolais, Director, Corporate and Marketing Communications at Yellow Pages Group. “Print is just one of the media we offer in support of local search. We also operate Canada’s leading local search website YellowPages.ca as well as offer YellowPages.ca mobile search apps. Therefore, we encourage Canadians who do not wish to receive the directory at their homes to opt-out of the delivery list.”

St. John’s households can easily opt-out of their Yellow Pages directory delivery online at corporate.yp.ca/delivery or by contacting Yellow Pages Group’s Distribution Services at 1 800 268-5637.

Yellow Pages directory content is readily available online at YellowPages.ca™ and Canada411.ca™ or through mobile applications on Blackberry®, Apple iPhone™, Apple iPad™, Google™ Android™ and Windows Phone 7™ at www.yellowpages.ca/mobile .

Commitment to the Environment
In addition to addressing consumers’ evolving needs, the Custom Delivery Program is part of YPG’s commitment to the environment and the company’s participation in the Changing the World, One Step at a Time program developed by Quebec-based organisation, Équiterre and supported by Green Communities Canada.

YPG regularly encourages waste reduction and recycling efforts across Canada. The company works with provincial recycling councils nationwide and regularly reminds Canadians to recycle their old directories once the new ones arrive at their doorstep. According to studies by environmental organizations such as Stewardship Ontario, over 85% of Canadians recycle their outdated phonebooks.

Yellow Pages directories are entirely recyclable and made from post-consumer fibres and waste wood. They can be disposed of as part of regular municipal recycling pickup.

Further information on YPG’s environmental commitment can be found at http://corporate.yp.ca/environment .
