UTOSS (Use the Other Side Scratch-pads)

Help us reduce paper waste and save trees.

How does UTOSS work?

We provide you and your department with small GREEN bins for desks or work areas to store one-sided used paper into. When your green bin is full, empty the paper into a larger GRAY bin in a central location. When the gray bin is full, call us at ext. 83980 to collect the GRAY bins. Scratch pads will be made from the collected paper.

To participate in UTOSS, contact Kathy Russell 519-661-4014 ext. 84014 for details.

If you would like to order UTOSS pads, a voluntary donation to EnviroWestern's GROW project to plant trees with ReForest London is appreciated.
