Trayless Dining Success!

Trayless Dining SuccessDuring the week of November 17-21, three dining halls on campus went tray-less. The purpose was to measure just how much waste water could be avoided by not offering trays for its customers, and to evaluate the response among students and staff.

The event turned out to be a great success, waste was reduced by 3,120 lbs for the week collectively. It was decided to go "tray by request" from now on, and students seemed to be on board with the concept. The poster comes from Sodexho and Campus Dining who organized the event. Please contact them directly for more information.

Campus Dining also reminds you to:
  • Take only the number of napkins you need per meal.
  • Take only one cup for each beverage purchase.
  • Recycle aluminum cans throughout campus at the designated recycling stations as well as at home.
  • Dine in rather than carrying out.

It would be nice to know how much money SODEXO saves on the trays and on waste removal costs and why they don't charge less for the food, and work we put into this savings.
