Does campus dining operations offer discounts to customers who use reusable mugs instead of disposable cups in to-go food service operations?:
Yes

A brief description of the reusable mug program:

Yale Dining has eliminated free disposable cups and instead charges for cups (at the prohibitive cost of 25 cents each). In their place Yale Dining has given every student on the meal plan a free stainless-steel travel mug. Students bring both beverages and solid food out of the dining halls using these durable containers.

Note: the 0.25 listed is the charge per disposable cup used.


Amount of the discount offered for using reusable mugs:
0.25
