June 17 — The California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) will allow Verizon Wireless to end automatic delivery of the company’s printed residential white pages listings to customers in the state.
Verizon said it intends to provide customers with an online version of the white pages as the main way to access the directory. Customers also will be able to request a free, printed or CD-ROM directory of residential listings.
In October, Verizon asked the PUC to waive the existing requirement to deliver residential white pages in print format, with the company saying that significant human and natural resources are used annually to print and automatically distribute directories to customers who may not want or use them.
“The PUC´s decision to allow Verizon to end the automatic delivery of residential white pages listings is good news for California consumers and the environment,” Tim McCallion, president of Verizon´s West region, said in a statement. “Moving from automatic to on-request delivery of white pages listings is expected to save an estimated 1,870 tons of material from California’s waste stream.”
Print directories containing business and government white pages, customer information pages and the yellow pages will continue to be delivered.
