20 percent reduction in free student printing effective Sept.1

In a continuous effort to focus on environmental sustainability and waste reduction, the Douglas College Printing Working Group has recommended a College-wide plan to decrease student allotted printing by 20 percent each year over the next five years. Discussions first began in early 2018, when the Printing Working Group was tasked with strategizing ways to create more efficient and sustainable printing services for Douglas College.

The College will implement its first 20 percent cut on Sept. 1, which means free student printing will decrease to 240 sheets from 300. Students who reach the free print limit can continue to use the PayPrint Stations at a cost of $0.10 per page, but are encouraged to use technology and other options as a way to mitigate the need for printing. Faculty members are also encouraged to offer students the option to present coursework digitally as opposed to printing hard copies.

Reducing paper consumption at all campuses is one of the many ways Douglas College is committed to improving its environmental impact.
