SEARCH KENT STATE
Kent State Stark students, faculty and staff recycle more than 50 tons of paper and nearly 12 tons of plastic, aluminum and glass yearly, as reported by the Stark County Regional Planning Commission. Each campus office and public space has recycling containers. Recycling establishes good habits for the students, decreases waste in landfills and has eliminated one of the campus’ weekly trash collections.
Duplex Printing Saves Paper
To help promote waste minimization on campus, all computer labs offering printing services offers the option to have a different price per page charged if students decide to print on both sides of the page. The pay-to-print stations, located in each lab and public area, are now set to a discounted rate if the student prints duplex. Normal printing is still 5¢ per page. When a student chooses duplex printing the cost is 4¢ per page.
Additionally, a color laser printer has been added in the Main Hall East Wing computer lab. The cost of each color page is 15¢ or 14¢ per page if printing duplex.
