Dining Hall Recycling

As part of Pitt’s Dining Services Sustainability Initiative, Sodexo-managed Market Central now composts pre-consumer and post-consumer waste, reducing food waste by nearly 75 percent in the dining hall. Trays are no longer available at the all-you-care-to-eat facilities, to discourage students from loading up trays with foods that ultimately end in the trash. And waste cooking oil from Market Central, The Perch, Cathedral Cafe, and Schenley Café now goes to Fossil Free Fuel through the Refuel Pittsburgh initiative.
