How about they just send the phone book delivery truck that would otherwise come to my house

directly to the recycling station

? That would be more efficient than the current system, under which I'm supposed to schlep the old thousand-pound phone books, which I didn't want or ask for—which doesn't even have cell phone numbers for anybody I'd want to get in touch with—to the library. On my bike.

This just in from city of Santa Fe spokeswoman Laura Banish:

The City of Santa Fe's annual phone book recycling program started earlier this week and will run through the end of June. Old phone books can be dropped off at the following locations:

La Farge Library, 1730 Llano St.

Southside Library, 6599 Jaguar Dr.

Tony Anaya Building, 2550 Cerrillos Rd.

Fort Marcy Complex, 490 Washington Ave.

Siler Offices, 1142 Siler Rd.

Manuel Lujan Building, 1200 S. St. Francis Dr.

Buckman Road Transfer Station, 1686 Paseo De Vista
