Default Phone Book Reminder

As you receive your new phone books, please refrain from placing them at the postal facilities. Please keep our community clean by placing your old (as well as new) phone books out for collection on your regular home collection day.

Excessive trash. Why not send a post card, so people could order the book if they really want it? I already threw mine out.

Cannot remember the last time I opened a phone book for anything.

Headed the way of the buggy whip.

Yes it should have a way to either opt in or out.

The yellow page revenue stream must be such that nobody cares if they are used or not.

I know businesses that had a dedicated, yellow page phone number.....that never rang!

Do you remember getting the annual Sears Christmas catalog? Then they scaled back and had you send a card back in if you wanted one. Now, it looks like Sears will be filing bankruptcy. So sad.

Where was I going with this?

Oh yeah.

Retiredguy ‘s idea has merit.

Was the postal station the place to bring old telephone books at one time? I would never consider bringing an old phone book there. Color me confused about this.

Phone books are to be recycled so I don't understand why anyone would bring them to the postal station.
