Recycled Paper

From the suggestion box:

hi, thanks for the friendly service, wondering if it is possible to have more printers and photocopiers with recycled paper in the library? I understand that it may be more expensive, however I would like to know how this could be achieved, Kind Regards

Library Response:

Thanks for your suggestion. You may be aware that the Cairns Library currently has one photocopier, on the top floor, using recycled paper. Thus students do have the option of choosing to photocopy on recycled paper. Unfortunately at this point in time recycled paper is more expensive than other paper for us to purchase. So it has not been possible to introduce recycled paper across all printers and copiers without increasing the cost to students; we try to keep the cost of printing and copying as low as possible. However we do have sympathy for environmental issues and regularly review our supply of consumables such as paper, so it is possible the situation could change in the future.
