Va. Phone Books Could Go Way of Dinosaur…Finally

Phone Book

In news from across the river, the fine folks in Arlington are all over an environmentally friendly idea: stopping phone books.

Verizon has said that by discontinuing the White Pages in Virginia, it can save 1,600 tons of paper per year. Results of today’s poll by show 95% of voters want to ditch the practice of tossing trees on every doorstep in a honking big book that only 11% of recipients will ever use.

Don’t want the Yellow Pages either? You can opt out.

Now there’s an idea that makes sense.

An area resident since 1997, Donna C. is a DC outsider. When she’s not running her writing and Web business, she’s running around the city, exploring the great outdoors, or trying to figure out how best to go green. See why she loves DC.

  2. The opt out form doesn’t include Washington DC as a ‘state’ option. And its a required field!

  3. I wish Verizon had made this decision already, since they dumped both the white and yellow pages on my doorstep just last week!
