Does campus dining operations provide reusable containers for to-go food that are returned for cleaning and re-use?:

A brief description of the reusable to-go container program:
Both dining halls provide reusable containers for to-go food. These containers are returned to the dining halls for cleaning and re-use. All meal plan purchasers are provided with a reusable food container free of charge. (Non-meal plan members and students who lose their first container may purchase a container for $3.50.) Once a container has been used, it is exchanged upon entry into the dining hall for a clean, sanitized container. The reusable food containers are made of BPA-free, break-resistant, recyclable (#5) plastic, and can withstand temperatures from 32 to 180 degrees.
