YP provides printed commercial and residential telephone directories to customers nationwide. Some telecommunications providers, including Frontier and Verizon, publish their print directories through Dexmedia at the Directorystore.com. Free residential directories can be ordered online at YP.com.
The Local Search Association and the Association of Directory Publishers are trade associations that include publishers of telephone directories. The LSA and APD provide services and advocacy for both print and digital publishers.
One initiative from the ADP and LSA is to establish yellowpagesoptout.com so that customers may choose not to receive telephone directories. The effort is meant to save money on delivery and publishing costs as well as to avoid the environmental waste from unwanted directories.
