Beginning in Fall 2018, all University Housing Dining Markets at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will move to a reusable to-go container program for all carry-out food. The goal of this program, named Ticket to Take Out, is to reduce single-use disposable waste in all University Housing Dining Markets and to establish a green alternative for guests wishing to take their food on-the-go.

How it works:
All students living in University Housing Residence Halls and any UW-Madison Faculty or Staff who have purchased a Faculty/Staff Meal Plan will automatically receive a Ticket to Take Out container token. Individuals will bring their container token with them to any University Housing Dining Market and request their food to-go. A Dining Team Member will place the meal in a Ticket to Take Out reusable container. Upon check-out, the cashier will request the container token. When the individual is finished with their meal, simply return the empty, clean container to a container vending machine located in one of five Dining Markets—Carson’s, Four Lakes, Gordon Avenue, Liz’s, or Rheta’s—and receive a new token for use at a future meal.
