JACKSON, Wyo. — The Jackson Town Council is backing away from a proposed ban on phone book deliveries.

That's after several phone book publishers promised town officials Monday they would pick up unused phone books from the post office and stop delivering to people who say they don't want phone books.

Some Jackson Town Council members expressed skepticism about the phone book industry's pledge to self-police but agreed to wait and see if the issue continues to be a problem.

Just one household in Jackson can receive up to five phone books from various publishers. The phone books pile up on front porches and at the post office.

Some say the businesses waste tons of low-quality paper that is costly to recycle.
