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

Program Goals

* Demonstrate commitment to reduce environmental impact of dining operation.
* Reduce waste removal costs for university partners.
* Engage student leaders and administrators in environmental awareness.
Program Process
The customer purchases the container from the cashier to use on their next visit to purchase food from the dining hall. The customer rinses the container after use and brings it back on their next visit, and receives a clean container. The container is then washed, rinsed and sanitized and is recycled back to the next customer.
