Humber's Reusable Container Programs
Humber is expanding the availability of reusable food containers at dining locations across North and Lakeshore campuses. Each campus has a unique reusable container program which students, staff, and faculty are invited to participate in at the campus they are on.
North Campus: The O2GO reusable container program will be available at Street Café as well as in the Staff Lounge, with participation remaining optional. To enter the program, users pay $10 per container using debit, credit or cash, or with the ONECard app for those who wish to redeem the cost as ONECard credit upon exiting the program. Containers can be returned at any time to O2GO machines installed next to participating food locations on campus.
North Residence: all meals will be served in O2GO containers. Credit from residents’ Flex Dollar balance will be used towards the $10 O2GO container deposit when paying for the first meal in an O2GO container.
Lakeshore Campus: All meals from Lake Café and Commons Eatery will be served in blue reusable containers supplied by Friendlier. Users will be charged refundable deposits that range from $0.50 to $1 per container. Refunds are to be requested using the Friendlier mobile app or on their website. Containers can be returned to designated collection bins located near participating food outlets and Lakeshore Residence.
By eating 2 meals a week in a reusable container, one individual can keep about 50 containers from going to landfill in a school year.
