UBC Okanagan Food Services is starting a food revolution and supports a sustainable campus. They use environmentally friendly green chemicals, products, and biodegradable garbage bags that decompose in 60 days. Food Services also provides an all services recycling station in or near all their eateries that accepts compost, recyclables and returnables.

The compost program accepts all organic and compostable material including: bread, meat and bones, fruits and vegetables, tea bags, coffee grounds and filter, napkins, wooden cutlery, chopsticks, and food containers marked compostable.

The returnables program collects all bottles – glass, tetra and plastic – for return to the bottle depot. In the spirit of social responsibility, the money from recycling pop bottles and cans is donated to Pathways Kelowna and is used to benefit the greater community.
