UWindsor Food Services is committed to integrating sustainability into its operations. Sustainability is the delicate balancing act of satisfying human needs today while protecting the environment for future generations. We are dedicated to continual improvement in the areas of local purchasing, environmentally friendly practices and global social responsibility. Listed below are some of the sustainable initiatives we are proud to be involved with and continue to support.


We recycle our glass, cardboard, paper, aluminum cans and cooking oil diverting several tonnes of material going into the landfill each year.

Recycling bins are situated in all areas of each facility making recycling convenient and easy for employees and customers.

Xprss Nap

Xpress Nap Dispensers save energy and waste. Not only are the napkins made of 100% recycled paper, the dispensers encourage customers to take (and waste) fewer napkins. Energy is saved because less power is used to recycle paper products than to create them from virgin material.

Grounds For Growth

At UWindsor, we save 100% of our coffee grounds after we brew coffee at our retail and resident dining locations Staff, Faculty and Students are able to pick up any of these grounds to use for their gardens at home for excellent fertilizer! Also makes great ant repellent!
