  • EcoWare is approved by the Department of Health and properly sanitized by UVM Dining. 
  • Students will swipe in to get a container from our cashiers. Then you will walk around make your meal selections, all we ask is the container closes, go off enjoy your meal and bring back your dirty container to any drop off location to get your next meal-to-go.
  • Return dirty containers promptly to any dining facility or designated drop off location. 

• EcoWare will also be available in our retail locations upon request, choose to reuse to get a 25 cent discount off your meal at the register.
