Phone Book Overload

Another round of phone books is going out to local residents, but not everyone finds them as useful as in the past.

Downtown homeowner Diane Gordon says she already has enough phone books, and finds getting more than one to be a waste of resources, "It's just a waste of paper and everything, to have that many phone books, I don't think we need that many".

Scott Green with local phone book company Gold Leaf Directories says not all phone books are created equally, "it's like TV stations, gas stations, restaurants...this is free enterprise, this is America, we came here 13 years ago with the same idea".

He says his company gives a personal touch, and invests in fueling local economy at the hand of a local company.

But if you’d still like to get rid of your phone books, there is a proper way to do so.

Curbside Recycling in Grand Junction will take them off your hands.

You can drop them off in the ‘phone books’ bin, or if you’re an ‘at-home’ customer, leave them on top of your newspapers.

The Grand Junction Curbside Recycling Center is located at 333 West Avenue, and is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

    Free enterprise or not, there's the matter of preserving our natural resources and saving the planet and all that jazz- I guess that doesn't mean anything around here?
