Catering Information

Disposable plastic straws are not distributed at the majority of campus catering outlets. Catering outlets that are centrally managed are required to follow the policy on disposable plastic straws while many independent outlets are also doing their part to reduce disposable plastic straws on campus. Each catering outlet will have their own plan to comply with the policy.

​Exceptions to the disposable plastic straw policy may be permitted in health-related or other emergency situations

See below how catering outlets are reducing straws:
