Doing our part to stem the tide of paper, we have eliminated our own monthly dance's paper flyer. (We stopped making one, although not really to stem paper tide... did it purely to save our promo team time, as it seemed like hardly anyone was taking the flyers at dances.) We do have business cards for our dance with email/website contact info on back. Those are regularly taken.
We do still receive flyers from other series and special events. We display them until they've expired. We also have a bunch of flyers/brochures from CDSS, DEFFA (our Maine folk arts org), and other non-dance local community orgs.) Some time ago we traded a flyer table for a hanging display inspired by something done at a festival (NEFFA maybe?) where flyers were inserted into clear pockets on wall. Our imperfect system uses a shoe organizer with clear pockets. (Imperfect b/c the pockets are narrow and don't fully display full page flyers. Otherwise it's perfect, b/c it takes no table space and very little time since most of the flyers just stay in the pockets and it gets folded up and put in a cabinet from dance to dance.)

We purge flyers weekly (I use the scrap, if I can, otherwise recycle it.) How do others manage the growing tide of paper? Bob Fabinski
