Does campus dining operations offer discounts to customers who use reusable mugs instead of disposable cups in to-go food service operations?:

A brief description of the reusable mug program:
As NSCC has multiple campuses all over Nova Scotia, different campus offer different discounts for reusable mugs. Our Akerley, Marconi, Pictou, Truro and Waterfront campuses offer a 10- 20¢ discount for using a reusable mug.

Amount of the discount offered for using reusable mugs:

Description of other reusable food- or beverage-related programs (e.g. incentives for use of reusable bags, dishware, to-go containers):
At our Akerley campus the cafeteria uses resuable plates and cutlery. If a patron wants to use disposable plates or cutlery they have to pay a 50¢ fee. This is to discourage the use of paper plates and plastic cutlery.
