Getting Greener at the Library... Bins are Filling Up

These recycling bins represent the amount of paper left behind at the library printers... from Monday, 4/21- Thursday, 4/24. The red wrappers you see are from fresh reams of paper fed into the printers during that same time period. I wish I had thought to count those, but I can tell you that the library spends over $10,000 a year on recycled paper for the printers.

Our little "art" project will come down tomorrow. Our goal was to increase awareness of the waste that occurs when items are printed and not collected, etc. Please read our other tips to improve your printing habits.
