(Note: John Kraus has updated his February article about Trayless Dining at Carleton, and the updated version has been reposted here.)
According to Food for Thought (A Carleton student group), the Carleton dining halls produce about 2,700 pounds of food waste per day. Colleges, in an attempt to reduce waste and save money, have experimented with various ways to reduce food waste. Going to tray-less dining has generally shown a reduction in food waste of 25-30%; Hamline College recently implemented this step and expects to save $25,000 a year. In the following article John Kraus ('10) outlines a well researched case for trayless dining at Carleton.
