Residential Dining Services is always striving to increase local and or third-party verified goods, such as certified organic, in dining centers, and express centers. In addition, waste diversion is prioritized when it comes to food waste. The dining centers utilize pulpers, biodigester, and recycling processes when it comes to used cooking oil and food scraps. 93% of all food waste is diverted through composting and waste to energy programs. Trayless dining was also implemented in 2008 in an effort to reduce overall food waste and encourage students to take only what they need. Leftover food is also donated to Larimer County Food Bank. All of the dining to-go products and 100% compostable including containers, drinkware, and cutlery, and students are encouraged to properly dispose of them in the compostable containers located in every residence hall lobby and outside waste stations.
