and if you don't want to get phone books anymore just check this out http://www.agreenerindiana.com/forum/topic/show?id=1995154%3ATopic%...
Thanks for this info, Eric. I always lament the waste created by phone books. I've already signed the petition. Any ideas on how to get AT&T to stop sending their phone books? This year they supplied me with four different ones! Talk about destroying our trees . . .
theoretically this will stop you getting phone books if you follow the directions in the post linked above.

Since 2001, I have been exclusively using a cell phone and I do not get phone books.

by the way....my understanding is that you cannot recycle phonebooks into another paper product because the fiber length of the paper is so short that you can't recycle it into any other paper product.
