Wilfrid Laurier University was one of the first Canadian universities to implement a reusable take-out container program, called the Eco-Container. A one-time fee of $5.00 provides students with a reusable container, which is valid for the entire course of their university career. Simply follow the 4 easy steps of the program and drop off at the marked locations to contribute to eliminating unnecessary waste.
How To Get Involved:
1 – When retrieving your food from William’s (Brantford), the Dining Hall, Terrace or take out from Wilf’s (Waterloo), ask for your food in an Eco-Container.
2 – Take your food to the cashier and they will charge you $5.00 for the container.
3 – Once you are finished with your food, on your next trip to the Dining Hall or Terrace, place your empty container in one of the drop off bins located there. When you do this, the cashier will give you a card to replace your container for next time.
4 – After receiving your next meal in an Eco-Container, present the cashier with your Eco-Container card, and she will not charge you for the container.
