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."
