Important information about Printing to the Copiers

In the past we accepted print jobs directly to the copier. It was easy to use and setup. The downside is that it led to A LOT of waste and a lack of privacy. People would print 100's of pages to the copier and then leave them there without picking them up. Because of issues like these we have moved to a 'Send & Retrieve' model of printing. Now when a print job is submitted to the copiers the print job is held and waits to be retrieved via a pass-code. It is more complicated to use and less convenient, but it is much less wasteful and less expensive.
