Paperless Information Centre

Paperless Brochures - what are your thoughts?

At the City of Kalamunda, as part of our corporate objectives being environmentally sustainable is crucial.

We are continually looking at ways of reducing our waste and improving our services. One major area was recently highlighted - the City paper consumption in our brochure and flyer distributions. Looking into this area further, highlighted that many of the flyers and brochures needed regular updates and therefore previously printed information then would become obsolete.

We at the City, thought this would be an ideal opportunity to revise our process and printing options for this core service. We understand that brochures and flyers are an invaluable source of information. However, many of our community do not always have the opportunities to get the printed information from our centres.

Having reviewed our consumption and distribution of our brochures, we are now investigating alternate options on how best to deliver the most recent and current information in the most timely manner, without continually re-printing and distributing. One of the ways is by using the digital options now readily available.

With the digital option being considered, the City would still continue delivery of information but would only print on-demand and provide alternate format options upon request, thus ensuring we reduce our paper consumption, costs and carbon footprint for this crucial service.
