Reviewed P2 Options
for the
Food Processing/Rendering - Dining Process

Following are a set of P2 options you may wish to implement. No option is perfect for everyone, but sometimes options that have worked at one facility can work at yours. They might also serve as inspiration.

Reviewed Food Processing/Rendering - Dining Options

Following are a list of options that have been reviewed by pollution prevention specialists. These options have worked at other facilities and may work at yours.

 

Choose durable menus

Choose durable menus rather than disposable paper ones. If you prefer paper, use those made of recycled-content paper and note it with the "chasing arrows" logo signifying recycled-content paper; your customers will appreciate it.
 

Take-out containers

When possible, choose take-out containers made of recycle or degradable material.
 

Disposing of plastic containers

Before disposing of recyclable plastic containers, remove lids to facilitate recycling.
 

Use refillable pens

Purchase refillable cartridge pens and mechanical pencils instead of disposable one.
 

Use reusable tableware

Use durable, permanent tableware instead of disposables.
 

Reduce straw use

Minimize the use of straws.
 

Use non-disposable glasses

Offer foundation beverages in glasses, not disposable cups.
