Virginia Tech Dining Services wants YOU to choose to reuse! In order to reduce waste and lower our carbon footprint, we have partnered with Student Government Association, Housing and Residence Life, and the Office of Sustainability to offer a Reusable To-Go program on campus. This program consists of Reusable To-Go containers, and Reusable To-Go water bottles.
Reusable To-Go Containers
Using Virginia Tech’s Reusable To-Go program is a great way to save money and reduce waste when you take your food to go. Compostable clamshells cost 25 cents apiece, and they often end up in the landfill. Join Dining in doing the “green” thing and get your food in a free Reusable To-Go container!
Not sure how it works? Our campus program is a lot like a public library. Every person with a Hokie Passport (regardless of Dining Plan status) has three containers “credited” to their account. These containers are free to use, and you can have up to three containers checked out at one time. Like a library book, however, they are not yours to keep. You must return your containers to an OZZI machine before the end of the year in order to avoid getting charged.
Still have questions? Check out our FAQ page here, or visit our "reusable how-to" page here for detailed instructions for using the program.
Reusable To-Go Water Bottles
Being green is easy when you have one of Dining Services' Reusable To-Go water bottles! Custom Camelbak water bottles are available for purchase for just $14.00. You get free water when you use this bottle, and they can be purchased at Owens Food Court, Hokie Grill, Wired at West End Market, Dolci e Caffe at Turner Place, DXpress, D2, and Burger '37.
