In an effort to go green FairPoint Communications is removing local residential listings from printed phone books. The white pages can now be found online. Publishing the white pages online became legal in Maine and New Hampshire in 2012.

FairPoint has moved its directory to a site managed by Dex Media for most communities in Maine. That site includes both Yellow Page and White Page searches.

That page directs customers to call Dex Media at 877-243-8339 if they would like to request a phone book with full residential White Page listings.
