ECO Programs

Due to COVID-19, our traditional reusable programs were put on hold because they did not meet the KFL&A guidelines. In keeping with our sustainability mandate, we searched for other programs that could run in the interim, and be continued beyond when the guidelines are lifted. Introducing 2 new programs, the Choose to Reuse program and the Huskee Cup program.

If you are a student living in residence, or purchased a meal plan that includes flex $, you are automatically enrolled in the ECO Container program!
Residence Students: You will receive your green carabiner in your Residence Move-In Welcome PAckage. You can take this carabiner to any participating retail location on campus, shown in the map below, and swap it for your meal in an ECO Container. Just let the station staff member know that you ar part of the program, show them your carabiner, and drop the carabiner in the Drop Bin on the counter.

Off-Campus Meal Plan Holders: If you purchased an Off-Campus Meal Plan that includes flex $, you are automatically enrolled in the ECO Container program! You can pick up your green carabiner in the main Hospitality Services Office in Victoria Hall, room E022, and start using the program!

At the end of the year, ECO Container program participants can return their carabiner or ECO Container to receive their $5 flex deposit back.
