Where do you go to look up a phone number for a local business?

Do you pay to call directory assistance at (203) 555-1212? Do you keep a phone book over the rotary phone in the kitchen? Does the sight of a plastic bag on the doorstep containing a new phone book — or several — make you smile or plan a trip to Holly Hill?

If Google has replaced Yellow Pages in your house, and you don’t like to see paper wasted, it’s now possible to opt out.
