Tier2-1: Trayless Dining
Director of Auxiliary, Recharge, and Contract Operations
Does the institution have a trayless dining program in which trays are removed from or not available in dining halls?:
A brief description of the trayless dining program:
UAF has eliminated trays from the dining hall in an effort to reduce food waste and trash. Removing trays also saves water and heat for washing. Going trayless in the dining hall has resulted in a 50 percent reduction in the volume of waste produced post consumer, reduced food prep and 220,000 less trays washed annually.
