Sustainability at your Luther College Document Center

Shredder
We have added a benefit for students, faculty and staff.  We now a have a large shredder available for your use in the Document Center, located on the ground floor of the Main Building.  Our hours are Monday –Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.  Stop in during our regular business hours for this new self service benefit provided to you by Luther College.   Paper shredded will be recycled.

Paper for Purchase
Did you know that over 90% of the paper sold in the Document Center contains recycled content?  Our standard 20# white paper contains 30% post-consumer content.  This is the same paper used in the LIS labs across campus.  Most of the colored paper purchased also contains 10%-30% recycled content.

Toner Recycling
There are two locations on campus for recycling toner and ink jet containers.  One is the Document Center, the other is at the Preus Library (Lori Patterson’s office).  All materials are shipped to a partner of a Ricoh Company (formally known as IKON Office Solutions).  They are recycled or disposed of properly.
