Urgent Recycled Paper Update
Following a paper mill fire, North America’s largest recycled paper manufacturer will be shutting down production for recycled fiber and raw material across all brands. When shopping for recycled paper in Marketplace, the University’s strategic supplier Staples will provide suggestions on alternative items to help address this shortage. Staples has implemented measures to help avoid outages on critical products after mask and hand sanitizer demand throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
We encourage you to monitor inventory levels. Do not hoard paper, but if your space and budget allow, adjust your safety and back-up stock. The SKU numbers for alternative paper are 513096 (carton) and 513099 (ream). This paper is FSC Certified to help support efforts to responsibly source wood fiber.
We appreciate your understanding and will provide updates as we receive them from Staples.
