Green Plates rental program

Green Plates Rental Program

The Green Plates rental program is a waste-reduction project designed to eliminate the need for disposable dishes at campus events. The Green Plates dish program is a new and exciting addition to Trent University community that was jointly developed by the Trent Central Student Association, Trent University Foodservice and Chartwells. The program allows student groups to access complete sets of dishes for their events that include food. We provide reusable large and small plates, bowls, glasses and silverware that will save student groups the cost of buying disposables, the time of cleaning dishes, and reduce the impact on the environment. The dishes that were selected for the program are made of 50% renewable resources, including corn or oil and wood fibre.

Each Green Plates tote includes 24 complete sets of dishes, and students may reserve up to 144 sets. Order by the number of totes that you require for your function, and pick them up at the LEC kitchen on the day of your event. We even include a cart to make on-campus transportation easy. When you are finished simply pack all of the place settings back into the tote and return to the LEC kitchen within 24 hours to be cleaned.

To ensure dishes are available for your event, you should book your Green Plates as early as possible, at least three days before your event. A rental Agreement is to be completed when the order is picked up.

The program is free for clubs and groups registered through the TCSA. There is a replacement cost for each item not returned or damaged.

24 - 72 place settings $15 + HST

96 - 144 place setting $25 + HST
