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

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

Heilman Dining Center - take-out meals
•Pay a one-time fee for the reusable container at the cashier's station: $7 for a container and a new Lug-a-Mug or $5 for a container only.
•The cashier will hold your ID after you pay with your meal plan, or with cash.
•Fill up the container with your HDC favorites. There is a 28ounces food limit per swipe or purchase.
•Select a dessert (have them wrap it at the dessert counter) or ice cream novelty and a piece of fruit. This does not count as part of your 28 ounces.
•Get a beverage in your Lug-a-Mug (only).
•Take it back to the cashier where they will check the weight and return your ID.
•After finishing your meal to-go, rinse out your container and return it to the Heilman Dining Centerfor a clean container the next time you need a meal to go. We will wash, sanitize, and recycle the container you return.
