New Compostable “To-Go” Policy

Due to the high cost of our disposable compostable containers, Blugold Dining will begin charging $1.00 for a compostable “to-go” container on Monday, March 28. These disposable compostable containers are only available in the Terrace on lower campus.

However, keep in mind that there is an alternative option—our reusable “to-go” containers! This option requires a $5 deposit for a large container and $3 deposit for a soup cup; but the best part is that your deposit is fully refunded when you return the containers making this option essentially free!

Our compostable program conforms to the goals of the strategic plan of the University to become more green and sustainable, and we are proud to be a part of it and offer two environmentally friendly options!
