    either in the scrap paper box, or if they ask nicely, I give them some paper at the start of the week (and no more)

    I'm full of paper, obviously not literally, my office is. I print 1000 timetables in September that are A5 in size but printed on A4 paper. I then use the guilotine to trim to size. As a result I have 1000 sheets of
    blank A5 paper that I use throughout the year for random scribbling, I mean important notes pertaining to jobs that staff would like to be done!

    Happy weekend everyone.

    Just go look around any of our printers or copiers...always paper left lying around there...loads of blank second pages printed from Word, jobs that have never been collected and part packs of paper that have not been put in the device...

    (why do people open a new pack of paper and then only put less than half in a device than can take a whole ream?)

    Why don't you print two copies on each page and then you would have no wastage?
