Phone books take a walk
IF you’ve missed out on the delivery of your phone book in Woolgoolga, there’s probably a good reason why.
A bushwalker yesterday stumbled on more than 100 dumped phone books as he took a leisurely stroll in the Wedding Bells State Forest west of Woolgoolga.
The books were just on the edge of one of the forest roads and were still in their plastic wrapping.
“We believe the books have been there for the past fortnight,” said Forests NSW community forester David Wilson.
“It’s such a stupid thing to do. There would be a significant number of people in the area who haven’t received their books.”
Forests NSW has contacted Sensis – the Telstra subsidiary responsible for the yellow and white pages directories – which is paying for a contractor to remove the books.
“They will also make inquiries about who is responsible for delivering phone books in the Woolgoolga area,” Mr Wilson said.
If you saw suspicious activity in the State Forest, you should contact Forests NSW North East region or Woolgoolga Police Station.
