In Dining Services, sustainability is of great importance to us.  We want to make sure we are being good stewards of our environment.  We work year round to assist the university in reducing waste, recycling, and conservation. 
In fact, in both 2012 and 2013, UNI Dining services was the recipient for the CARE award, which stands for Creating a Responsible Environment.
