Construction Paper Storage

How does your school organize its construction paper? We have a community workroom and our has a shelf system where the 18 x 24 sheets go in color categories. Our problem is with the scraps from the cutter. We have a 1/2 sheet bin but people want to save other sizes and so that bin is overflowing with different colors and sizes and no one seems to have any ideas. So any efficient systems out there?

Ours only has the 'new' paper (arranged just as you describe) and not the scraps. Teachers keep their own scraps in their room. I have a large, fabric 'portfolio' type case for my scraps.

We have the 12x18 sheets and 18x24 sheets on shelves. We also have a box top for each color of scraps for people to use in the die-cut machines or for other projects. Those are on separate shelves.

we have shelves for the long packages and then a smaller section devoted to the wonky smaller size (that has to be whacked by 1/2 inch to fit in copier). someone is always leaving scraps around, so a couple years back, the secretary made a hanging file folder with the different colors separated. i decided i needed the same system for my classroom--of COURSE the basket i bought is 1/8 inch wider than the hanging files, so they are always collapsing in.

I am just amazed that you have community supplies like that! We all have to purchase our own supplies with our limited budget allotment or our own money. We will trade with each other, but our stuff is stored in our classrooms.

Like a pp said, we only have the "new" paper in the workroom. If teachers end up cutting it and having scraps, those are kept in our rooms. I have a little basket of scrap paper in my room.
