A brief description of the guidelines for franchisees:

Franchisees located in the UMC are governed by the 72LCB15
University of Colorado Student Government Zero-Waste and Materials Management Policy which states:

Section 4: Contract Requirements and Procurement Guidelines
A. In an effort to reduce the need for materials management operations in CUSG cost centers, preferential procurement and contracts shall be given to vendors who offer materials reduction programs (i.e. take-back options or reusable pallets) that enable CUSG to meet its zero waste goals. A prioritized list of guidelines is located in Appendix, attached to this bill.
B. All private vendors and retailers operating in student fee-funded properties shall be required to comply with the zero waste standards supported by CUSG and the University of Colorado. It is mandated that these compliance standards be formally noted in all future contracts between CUSG cost centers and private vendors.
C. In order to support the recycling market and a “closed-loop system”, all CUSG cost centers and student groups shall give procurement preference to vendors and products incorporating recycled content when fiscally viable.
D. CUSG herby commits to achieving the post-consumer product standards generated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
