All paper purchased is a minimum of 30% post-consumer recycled content per state guidelines. Approximately 1650 cases are purchased annually between central stores (850 cases) and Fast Copy (1000 cases). Costs vary over time and from central stores to Fast Copy. However, an average of $37.00 per case yields results with confidence, especially considering 100% of the paper purchases are 30% recycled content.
