Recycle Old Phone Books

by Mr. Lazy

Phone books are a complete waste of space, energy, and outdated. Not to mention that but they are really not suited for the lazy at heart. Who can be bothered to search for a listing, when there is the Internet?

Most states offer some (usually free) way to recycle those big ugly yellow paperweights.

It’s a great way to be green the lazy way and even get your kids involved. Recycling is great and all, but if you really want to stop the paper war, write to your Congressperson and tell them how much they suck much waste phone books create. Oh, and they are a pain in the ass to get rid off, tell them that too.

Agree – I posted a rant on this too – and got a stock comment from the “yellow pages industry”

Even in my office at work I don’t see phone books in cubicles or workstations anymore. They’re as useful and as relevant as cassette tape answering machines, VCRs, and Blockbuster Video.
