Phonebook Month (observed) (U.S.) is the month following distribution of stacks of phonebooks commonly observed by "phonebook dumping" them in front of offices of the business in who's name they are distributed (i.e., Verizon, Pacific Bell). Contrary to the "invisible" cancellation of subscriptions, phonebook dumping is an attempt to bring consequences to bear upon businesses that generate stacks of unwanted phonebooks. C.f., "phonebook dumping."
Every year we observe one or two weekends in Phonebook Month (observed) (U.S.) by collecting copies from all the lobbies and mailrooms on the block in a shopping cart and phonebook dumping them in front of the Verizon store in the middle of the night. Then we get smashed.
