OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Johnson County Community College is thrilled to announce the College is using recycled paper for all campus printing!  

A multiyear sustainability initiative sparked a collaboration between JCCC’s Center for Sustainability and Document Services, a full-service document preparation, production and distribution facility located on campus. Document Services now uses at least 30% post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled paper for its printing. Expanding on this initiative, all copy paper used in every JCCC office is now 100% recycled!   

Another way the College supports sustainability efforts is by reducing its total paper usage. Ahead of trends, PaperCut was implemented across campus a decade ago. PaperCut allows students to print 100 free black-and-white copies per semester. After that, students are asked to pay 10 cents per single-sided page. Before this program, students were not limited on how much they could print. PaperCut has been largely problem-free and has helped the College save literally truckloads of paper.
