Dining Services has been a long-time campus advocate of environmental sustainability concepts, including recycling. 

Some of our recycling initiatives include:

  • Recycling cardboard, glass, plastic, and metal cans in all of our facilities 
  • Teaching new employees the procedures and value of recycling
  • Collecting and recycling pizza boxes at the Niche Pizza Co. through a partnership with the Office of Sustainability
  • Send off all used cooking oil to be recycled
  • Recycling our office supplies, including all inkjet and toner cartridges
  • Purchasing office paper with a minimum of 30% recycled content
  • Providing on-campus collection sites for recycling cardboard, newspapers, plastic, and aluminum

Dining Services also composts food waste from its dining commons, retail, and catering operations and has substantial reduction efforts.
