By moving to a reusable container program, we will be saving hundreds of single-use plastic containers from the landfill. A 50 cent deposit, charged with every container meal purchased at our partner retailers, is returned to the customer through the Friendlier App once the container has been scanned, dropped off in a return bin, and made it to the Ottawa cleaning facility. This process can take up to 2 weeks.
Starting in September 2023, all meals purchased at the following on-campus eateries will also require customers to pay the 50 cent friendlier deposit:
- Go Café (LMX, FTX & TBT)
- Odelees (LEE)
- Première Moisson (FSS)
- Elements (RGN)
