More trees will be saved thanks to a decision by the Kentucky Public Service Commission that allows AT&T to stop automatic delivery of White Pages to customers in the Louisville area. The ruling applies to residents in Jefferson and Oldham Counties.
It follows a handful of similar decisions in other parts of the country. Earlier this year, in Atlanta, AT&T found that only 1 percent of its customers cared about getting the White Pages on their doorsteps.
The telco is required to continue automatic delivery of White Pages to smaller cities and rural areas where fewer people get address and telephone information via the Internet.
The Kentucky ruling also applies to residents in Jefferson and Oldham Counties who get phone service from their cable company. You can still get a White Pages directory if you ask for one.
