Does the institution have a trayless dining program in which trays are removed from or not available in dining halls?:
Yes

A brief description of the trayless dining program:

While drought conditions in early 2008 prompted NC State to conserve water by removing trays from the three dining halls, the university decided to make the change permanent. Since then, campus has conserved an average of 51,000 gallons of water weekly. Food waste and energy usage are down, too.
