We are committed to partnering with students and the Office of Sustainability to ensure that we operate in earth-friendly ways.

    We offer discounts to students who use their own reusable mugs instead of disposable cups in Cafe Vivian, the Food Gallery at Frist, Chancellor Green Cafe, Shultz Cafe, and Studio '34.

    In addition, we use 100 percent post-consumer paper goods at the Frist Campus Center and plant-based compostable cups and cutlery for catering events.

    Campus Dining is continuously seeking ways to reduce the amount of waste produced on campus and increase its recycling efforts.

    Food Waste and Recovery

    Food waste is currently transported to Organic Diversion in Marlton, NJ. Fryer oil waste is collected and taken to a local plant for biodiesel production. This certificate signifies the latest collection data and the effect on the environment.

    In 2017, we started diverting consumable food from the Butler, First and Forbes dining halls to Bentley Community Services in Monmouth Junction, NJ.
