Does campus dining operations provide reusable containers for to-go food that are returned for cleaning and re-use?:

A brief description of the reusable to-go container program:

Arizona State University’s primary food service contractor, ARAMARK, currently provides reusable to-go containers at the Arizona State University Downtown Phoenix campus Devil’s Greens restaurant. Customers pay a $3 deposit for the use of the containers. After using the containers, customers have three options: 1) Return the container and receive an exchange-tag to redeem for a clean container at their next visit; 2) Return the container and receive a clean container on the spot; or 3) Return the container and redeem the $3 deposit.

The ASU Health Inspector has given Sun Devil Dining a 6-month variance to the health code in order to pilot this program at Devil’s Greens. The goal is to expand this program depending on the outcome of the pilot.
