Unless you’re a jerk, the yearly arrival of the giant pain in your ass known as the D.C. Superpages is not as welcome as, say, the SI Swimsuit Issue. Fear not, City Deskers! I have the answers!

To get off the delivery list, call 1-800-888-8448. Pick option No. 2. Wait for someone to answer. Tell her it’s 2008 now and you use the tubes if you need a number. Voila! NOW: They’re coming this week, so you better hurry up if it’s not already too late. If it is and you need to purge last year’s and this year’s, the Mayor’s Call Center promises the city will recycle the monstrosities if you throw them in with regular recycling.

Go forth and save the earth.
