Reusable Food Containers

 

 

WHAT:

Re-usable container program utilized by the Yablokoff-Wallace Dining Center and food trucks for take out meals. The reusable container allows customers to take their meals to go and the result is less paper or plastic waste which ultimately ends up in the Landfill if it is not composted properly.

WHY:

Since it’s inauguration to UC Merced in 2011, OZZI Corporation has introduced their reusable container system into Universities and Companies across the country. UC Merced was one of the first customers to integrate our own Campus Card system into the check out and returns of the OZZI machines. Together with the OZZI Corporation, we have prevented tons of disposable containers from making their way to the landfill. Choose to REUSE, and make a difference.

HOW:

Program Details for On Campus for ALL customers:
