Yellow Pages Goes Green® Announces Four New Online Petitions for Ban on Print Phone Directories

Publisher continues push for more legislative action against phone companies printing and delivering unwanted phone books in the United States.

Cities and Towns can use their litter laws as tools to enforce these efforts.”

— Michael Keegan

COMMACK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — YellowPagesGoesGreen.org is helping municipalities and local governments around the country establish ordinances to mandate Yellow Pages and White Pages only be delivered to home and offices that ask for them. Municipalities and local government that provide trash services are concerned about the landfill cost and why they must absorb the cost of handling telephone directories. YPPG supports this mission.

An innovator in digital telephone directory services delivers over 28.5 million Yellow Page listings and over 200 million White page listings throughout the United States. In addition, YPGG’s “Paperless Petition” was a pioneer in the phone book “opt-out” movement which helped abolish obsolete print telephone directories by prompting awareness in both creating an official opt-out process and continues to push for a national ‘opt-in’ model for printed phone books.

To participate in the online petitions visit these links:

"Cities and Towns can use their litter laws as tools to enforce these efforts." said YPGG CEO Michael Keegan.

YellowPagesGoesGreen.org asks the question "Why do we get three to four pounds of paper dropped on out front door multiple times per year by various telephone directory companies and we are supposed to dispose of them?" Stop the nonsense and the cost placed on the consumer. If we want a book we will request one. If we do not want a book delivered, stop delivering them. YellowPagesGoesGreen.org had spent years contacting local telephone companies to provide them with consumer’s names and addresses telling them to stop the nonsense. This did not cost users anything.
YellowPagesGoesGreen.org has developed its own eco-friendly alternative to the Yellow Pages which is free for consumers to use to find local business listings. Our service is continually changed and kept current so you are not potentially looking at several months or even year old information.

PK Safety Launch Revolutionary Stop ‘N’ Go Safety Gloves

Stop 'N' Go Safety Glove

YSTRAD MYNACH, COUNTY (OPTIONAL), UNITED KINGDOM, September 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — PPE Supplier PK Safety are set to dramatically reduce reversing incidents and accidents in the waste collection and transfer sectors with the launch of their Stop’N’Go range of handling gloves this month. Designed for use by banksmen and reversing assistants, the gloves are coloured red and green on the palm and back of the hand respectively to align with the hand signals suggested by the HSE for communicating with reversing vehicles. The range has been designed with the collaboration of SUEZ R&R Ltd and has been created with the aim of providing a simple and convenient solution to improving reversing operations both on-site and whilst undertaking collection rounds.

PK Safety are a supplier of protective equipment and workwear to a wide range of local authorities, waste collectors and waste processors. They pride themselves on working closely with their clients to provide innovative solutions to everyday safety and operational issues and irritations. Bevan Wells (Director of PK Safety) says, “The launch of the Stop’N’Go range of safety gloves is a perfect example of what we offer our clients. Close collaboration and expertly tailored products to both their industries and daily tasks”. They currently supply clients like Suez R&R Ltd, Cardiff Council and Cory Environmental and are hoping that their latest move with the Stop’N’Go safety glove range will help both their existing clients and also be used throughout the waste sector.

This product innovation was created with the specific aim of tackling the high number of reversing accidents and associated fatalities in the waste industry. “With the largest cause for fatalities being ‘struck by a moving vehicle’ and a quarter of these deaths occurring whilst reversing it seemed a primary area of concern that we could do relatively little about as a protective equipment supplier, and that’s what we wanted to change” says Obe Nunn (Technical Advisor, PK Safety). Roy further points out that “if there is no death then a reversing accident can cause significant, life changing injuries or substantial damage to property or premises, all of which pose large and unneeded costs to the company(ies) involved.”

The safety gloves have been designed to offer what PK Safety call a “convenient switch” for waste companies. They are currently available in a textured rubber coating called Cratex (crinkle latex) which offers users improved grip and water resistance on the job, features that PK Safety have identified as critical for carrying out basic collection and processing tasks in the recycling sector. Available in 2 different cut levels and 2 levels of coating the safety gloves cater for a wide range of scenarios and alternative tasks.

Roy Wells (Managing Director of PK Safety) explained “It’s such a simple idea, we can’t believe it hasn’t been done before. We’ve had fantastic feedback from everyone we’ve presented the Stop ‘N’ Go concept too. There is nothing to install, nothing to hold and nothing you need to be trained on which makes it the convenient switch from your current safety gloves. No stress, no mess. We’ve kept it nice and simple, how safety should be.”

“The real joy of this solution is how it fits seamlessly with the guidelines offered by the HSE for assisting a vehicle whilst reversing. It simply makes communication clearer and more effective and that was the main aim throughout our collaboration with PK Safety. I think it’s a simple but effective innovation that will hopefully make a real difference for waste collectors and the way we carry out reversing operations” says Chris Beddoes CMIOSH (SHEQ Manager at SUEZ R&R Ltd).

You can contact PK Safety about this range of gloves on 01443 741999 or stopngo@pksafetyuk.com.

ISWA World Congress 2018 in Kuala Lumpur

World Meet for Knowledge Transfer on Sustainable Consumption & Waste Management

KUALA LUMPUR , SELANGOR, MALAYSIA, September 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 28th International Solid Waste Association World Congress which will be held for the first time in Malaysia at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from 22nd – 24th October 2018

Heralded as the industry’s premier event, the ISWA World Congress is where professionals meet to exchange ideas and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for sustainable solid waste management. The three-day event is expected to attract over 1,000 delegates from across the globe.

Solid waste management, a fundamental infrastructure, is a growing global concern for both developed and developing countries due to its impact on public health systems and the environment. Estimates by the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) indicate global waste generation accounts for between 7-10 billion tonnes annually1.
The ISWA World Congress 2018 theme, Sustainable Consumption towards Waste Minimization, is focused on driving strategic change and technological innovation toward sustainable consumption solutions whilst reducing our ecological footprint and conserving the earth’s natural resources.

“Rapid urbanization and increasing global consumerism are driving unprecedented levels of waste generation. This rising tide represents an increasing environmental, social and economic burden. It’s time to look to a circular economy model with a focus on regeneration, restoration and reintroducing products into the value chain as opposed to a bin and bury approach” remarked Mr. Ho De Leong, Chairman, of the Waste Management Association of Malaysia (WMAM).

He continued, “We are thrilled to be hosting the ISWA World Congress 2018. The event will provide Malaysia a platform in which to showcase its progress in waste management. As we strive to become a high-income nation, our need to create an effective, economically viable and environmentally sound solid waste management system that supports the country’s development is paramount. By sharing our best practices and inviting other nations to share their own, we hope to leave a legacy.”

The ISWA World Congress 2018 will feature a comprehensive scientific programme highlighting the socio-economic impacts of waste recycling, waste reduction, and health, safety and policy regulation pertaining to recycling and climate change. It will also include areas of current interest such as the new plastic economy, marine and coastal waste management. The scientific programme will culminate with a forum that will see key ASEAN ministers responsible for the solid waste management, participate in a dialogue to re-evaluate waste management policy and practices within the region.

Since its inception in 1990, the ISWA Congress annually attracts researchers, scientists, young professionals, and policymakers from around the world to network and exchange scientific and technical data policies and case studies on a wide range of solid waste management issues., The Congress offers a critical platform to bring about positive action and cutting-edge innovation toward sustainable solid waste management with a think global, act local approach.

Consumers Beware: Yellow Pages Goes Green® Warns of Ongoing Yellow Pages Invoice Scam

Small businesses are being targeted by a unique and dangerous scam; paper invoice solicitations sent by postal mail.

EAST NORTHPORT, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to a nationwide coalition of State Attorney General's Offices, small businesses across the country are being targeted by a unique and dangerous scam; one designed specifically to separate them from their heard-earned money, and they’re using their local Yellow Pages to do it.

The scam comes in the form of solicitations sent out to the businesses in question that, at first glance, appear to be invoices from the local Yellow Pages. Typically, these invoices are postal mailed by companies located outside of the state in which the victim is located, and while these companies at times actually do publish directories, they will usually only contain listings for a very limited number of businesses. However, sometimes these companies don’t even publish a directory at all.

These invoices can be deceiving, as often they will be very official-looking, utilizing the near-famous “walking fingers” logo and the term “Yellow Pages,” both of which are trademarks that exist in the public domain, according to court rulings. In addition, the invoice will include the phone number of the business, and other information, such as the name of an account representative and a request to update their listing if any aspect of it is outdated. These are all techniques to trick the victim into believing that an existing relationship exists; such professional-looking documents can certainly be confusing, and it’s that confusion that scammers rely on in order to rip off honest, hard-working businesses.

From there, it’s simply a matter of requesting payment from the victim for a directory listing that may or may not even exist. And if by some miracle the directory being offered by the scammer is actually published, it will be in such limited quantities and distribution that it will be all but useless; the whole idea of the scam.

To add to the deception, the paperwork the victim receives may contain contradictory terminology; it may simply be a solicitation – which, by United States Postal Department guidelines, must contain the phrase “THIS IS NOT A BILL.” This is the case, you are under no obligation to pay or respond. However, if you do choose to respond to the inquiries contained in the document you receive, you may suddenly find yourself unknowingly agreeing to some relationship defined in fine print and entered into an obligation to the scammer, which can end up costing you money. It’s always best to shred and simply throw any such paperwork immediately.

However, the scammers could be especially brazen and pass the scam off as a legitimate invoice; either way, contacting the authorities and reporting such activity is a good idea, not only to protect yourself, but to also help others from falling prey to the scam in the future.

Of course, there’s always the chance that you could receive a real request from your legitimate local Yellow Pages, but since it always pays to be cautious, be sure to do your homework first. Go online and conduct research on the company, and if they have a contact phone number – many scammers won’t – call them and ask questions about distribution, number of directories in circulation, and so on. Also visit them at the Better Business Bureau website and see if they have any complaints lodged against them. You can also call the Attorney General’s Office of your state and do the same.

If you do your research and discover something is indeed amiss, don’t hesitate to report the scammer to the authorities, either through the Attorney General’s Office or the Better Business Bureau.

"Being a small business owner in this day and age can be difficult enough, but when you add fraudulent scammers desperate to raid your wallet for your hard-earned cash into the mix, it can be downright maddening. But always remember to regard any suspicious piece of mail or email with a healthy degree of skepticism and, if you feel anything is at all amiss, do your due diligence in order to protect yourself. And if there’s any question that an unsolicited offer might be a scam in disguise, make sure you don’t fall for it, and then report it to the authorities to deal with. That way, you’ll not only keep yourself safe, but you’ll prevent the next business from falling for these unscrupulous individuals as well." says Michael Keegan, CEO of Yellow Pages Directory Inc.

Yellow Pages Directory Inc., owner of both YellowPagesGoesGreen.org and PaperlessPetition.org, offers an environmentally-friendly Web-based alternative to paper telephone directories while providing a simple and convenient mechanism for customers to opt out from the receipt of printed yellow books.

EKOGRID In-Situ Remediation Proves Ecological and Cost Efficient for Industrial Polluted Oil Site

Erkki Lindberg, CTO, Eko Harden Technologies

Land owner taps EKOGRID electrokinetic oxidation technology to clean up polluted land and office premises; on par with estimated minimum mass transfer cost

We are delighted that the builder has selected our in-situ EKOGRID technology to transform land into a high-value retail site. Compared with dig and dump, EKOGRID is cleaner and more cost-efficient.”

— Erkki Lindberg, CTO, Eko Harden Technologies

HELSINKI, FINLAND, September 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Contaminated land and water remediation specialists Eko Harden Technologies today announces that it has finalized remediation by its EKOGRID solution for builder Rakennuspalvelu J. Nyström Oy to eliminate oil hydrocarbons and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in a 2,000m² polluted plot of land on the outskirts of Helsinki.
Once remediated using the firm’s in-situ EKOGRID technology, the builder will transform the industrial plot into 22 warehouse and industrial premises units with a selling value of €2,500,000.

“Like so many Finnish builders, we are environmentally conscious so using the traditional dig and dump method for land remediation is irresponsible,” says Jani Nyström, Managing Director, Rakennuspalvelu J. Nyström Oy. “All we would do with the dig and dump method is relocate the pollution and we also estimated that there is a risk of increased digging associated with any dig and dump project.”

Although there is a vast interest for in-situ and more ecological treatment of contaminated soils, it is still relatively rare as dig and dump is still the prevailing solution. In 2017, there were about 300,000 tons of excavated contaminated soil in Helsinki alone.

According to the European Environment Agency, there could be as many as 2.5 million contaminated sites such as this Helsinki commercial plot across Europe. The soil on this site is contaminated by oil hydrocarbons with a volume of 200 m³ weighing approximately 300 tonnes.

Eko Harden has inserted 72 EKOGRID steel rod electrodes into the polluted area for the electrokinetic oxidation remediation to begin and one EKOGRID control unit managing the process. The remediation lasted 9 months.
By tapping EKOGRID technology for the soil remediation, the land owner and builder increased the value of the site, obtained permission to build the new commercial site and increased the return on investment through reducing the cost of the remediation process by an estimated €50,000 compared with the polluting dig and dump method.

“Clearly, we are delighted that the builder has selected our in-situ EKOGRID technology to transform its land into a high-value retail site,” says Erkki Lindberg, CTO of Eko Harden Technologies. “Compared with dig and dump, EKOGRID technology is cleaner and more cost-efficient.”

Eko Harden and its EKOGRID is fast becoming the partner-of-choice of government agencies, municipalities, land developers and energy companies alike to eliminate environmental disasters.
