Here’s a good dozen what sat in the lobby for twelve long hours.
Guess what? Nobody took even a one.
So these books got hauled off to the big blue bin when I got home last night. Good times.
And best of all, those The Real Yellow Pages / AT&T / YP books are surprisingly small these days, so you can carry them all in just one trip, you know, before they get all soggy:

Uh, AT&T, what’s the point of this exercise?
Nobody in San Francisco wants your Yellow Pages.
I know you think that we do, but we don’t.
Does Verizon do this? No
Does Sprint do this? No
Does T-Mobile do this? No
So why do you do it?
I know that you can do it, you know, legally, but I don’t know why you do it.
If you want to get credit for giving minimum wage union members money, why not just give them money and be done with it?
Anyway, if I see any stack of your phonebooks anywhere about town anywhere near a big blue recycling bin or an AT&T store, they’re all going to get together tout de suite.
See you in Hell, Yellow Pages people.
NB: Don’t try to “opt out,” San Francisco. All that does is give your contact information to AT&T so that they can ask you, every fucking year, if you still want to opt out. My conclusion: AT&T is a cancer.
