BANGOR, Maine — Eastern Maine Community College is making an effort to reduce paper waste on campuse this fall. The college has signed on with a new program, PaperCut, which gives EMCC students 350 prints per semester.
Utilizing student computer log-on information, students can see the number of remaining prints available on their EMCC account. After a student runs out of the 350 prints included with tuition, they will be able to buy a printer access card for $5 at the EMCC business office. Each card will buy them 100 more prints for use on campus. In addition to this green initiative, students now have the ability to print wirelessly in most campus buildings by uploading a document to their PaperCut account.
