Need Ideas

For what to do with over 100 reams of Legal sized paper.

It came back to corporate from numerous sites that didn’t need it.  I was thinking a school but the thinking is nobody uses/needs legal paper. 

It may end up in the garbage but we’re trying to find a good home for it.  Any ideas?

It's an odd size for normal use that's for sure. I've only printed a few spreadsheets on legal, but not for legal purposes. School is a good idea, they may have a use for it. It can be cut to letter sized if needed to. Hate to see it go to waste.

I'd also recommend a school who could likely use it for drawing and practice.

I'm sure a number of not for profits with a small budget could find some purpose for it.

Could you return it to Dunder Miflin?

I had to Google Dunder Mifflin! 😂.    I spose we could ask Staples.

In addition to schools, boys and girls clubs, after school programs, shelters and day care centters would likely be able to use them - anything with a program for kids and arts and crafts.

Send it to hip to cut down to proper size. 

PITA office manager said he’d make my new coordinator do that. I told him to STFU or I’d task him for that job.  😂

Daycare centers, schools, some assisted living places that have art coordinators, homeless shelters

For some weird reason, we use a lot of legal sized paper. I see boxes of it arrive every month. Maybe an accounting thing?

We did use it as well but covid really pushed us paperless and we removed 2/3 of our printers.

If your junior high schools are anything like mine were, you could donate the paper to the industrial arts classes. We would have chopped off pieces to make an assortment of cards and stuff like that. We also made little scratch pads of different sizes. We'd clamp the stack and glue one end. You can't have enough paper to train for menial positions in the printing industry.

I think some schools, especially private ones, would be potentially interested.

One year, I had a bunch of old chemistry books we no longer used that I was told to get rid of. Their information was still up-to-date. I wasn't supposed to do it, but I contacted a nearby Catholic High School who said they'd take them and put them in boxes, put them in my car, and quietly delivered them there myself.

If they could cut them to 8 1/2 x 11 without rough edges that would jam their photocopiers they'd be ok or maybe they could get another company with great tools to do it for them.  They might be able to put legal size stuff in their copiers.

School art class, like Kirby suggested. They can paint, draw, and paste.

This  Donate it to a kindergarten class or somesuch, kids don't really care what they draw or paint on.

I always hated legal.  I like standard letter 8.5x11 or Tabloid/Ledger 11x17 (basically 2x letter size).
