Opt out from receiving Yellow Books 




Thank you for taking the time to visit us and opt-out of receiving the Yellow Book.
We’re proud to offer households the option to notify us of their choice not to receive a Yellow Book – we’ve been doing so since 2014.

We do our best to ensure that once opted out, you do not receive a copy. However, our deliveries are made by your local community groups as part of their annual fundraising activity. We think they do a great job, but if they make a mistake and you get a book you didn’t want, just let us know within two weeks of the delivery and someone will drop by and take it off your hands.

We operate an Opt-Out deadline system, so just be aware that if you opted out after your regional deadline, you’ll still get the book this year. But, you will not receive a book next time around, or the year after that, or the year after that and so on.

If you’re a business, you’ll be approached and offered up to five books during the delivery period for your area. Currently opt-out is only available for residential delivery.

Please note: You can currently only opt out of residential delivery. Businesses will be approached as per usual and offered up to five books during the delivery period for their area.

Our book production schedule can be found here.
