In an effort to conserve water, many dining halls nationwide are switching from plastic to paper trays, as reported on the front page of today's Red & Black.

University Food Services isn't planning on making the change yet, but it does use paper cups in Snelling Dining Hall between 10 p.m. and midnight to reduce water consumption, along with donating leftover food to cut down on waste.

Many other campuses' dining halls are replacing plastic trays with paper to conserve water, but University Food Services hasn't made plans to completely switch.

"We use paper cups between 10 p.m. and 12 a.m. at Snelling (Dining Commons)," J. Michael Floyd, director of food services, said. "Now that we have moved to 24-hour service, we try to shut our dish washers down for a few hours to save water. Last year we saved 2.05 million gallons."
