CSU is committed to sustainability in its operations and purchasing. That’s why we switched from disposable plastic to 100% plant based compostable tableware!

Starting in February 2018, whenever you book catering though CSU Dining, you’ll automatically receive compostable cups, plates, and utensils with your order at no extra charge.

We collect compostable materials from events held in the Student Center. All food waste, cups, plates, utensils and napkins can be placed in these bins.

Organic waste will be composted by Rust Belt Riders

This initiative is a partnership between the Office of Sustainability, CSU Dining, Student Affairs, FAST and Conference Services.
