MORGANTOWN (AP) — West Virginia University is replacing foam to-go containers with more environmentally friendly, reusable cartons.

WVU Dining Services has contracted with OZZI Enterprises to provide the reusable containers at select dining facilities on campus. The system developed by the company allows students, after eating, to return the container to a collection machine where they receive a token to use the next time they need a container. The dirty containers are cleaned and sanitized for reuse.

Students will test the system at The Terrace Room in Stalnaker Hall starting with the spring semester. Dining Services director David Friend says if students like it, the system will be expanded across campus.
