Verizon gets OK to scrap printed white pages in NJ

NEWARK - New Jersey regulators on Thursday approved a request by Verizon to use the online, electronic version of its Verizon White Pages directory as the primary means to access residential telephone numbers.

Beginning in December, most Verizon directories delivered in New Jersey will not include residential white pages listings.

Customers will still be able to request a free print or CD-ROM directory of residential listings.

Print directories with business and government listings, information pages and yellow pages will still be delivered.

The company says it sought the change to improve efficiency and reduce environmental impacts.

White pages listings are accessible at the Verizon wireless website.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
