By February 2011 plans will be in place to ensure the reduction of paper use within the office and start our overall goal of becoming a paperless society.

Our newsletters are now a maximum of 2 pages (double sided).
Scanners will replace printers and the majority of printers will be removed.
Faxes will go online hopefully removing the need for a fax machine.
