The Ozzi System & Preserve 2 Go Containers

 

Ozzi, the system that has revolutionized the way we take our food to go!

WHAT IS OZZI?

Ozzi was designed to reduce disposable waste on campus simply by replacing the 'throw away' mindset with a reusable way of thinking. Whenever you wish to eat a meal to go in any of our 5 Residential Dining Halls, simply ask the food servers to place your food in a Preserve 2 Go reusable container. You then return your empty container and exchange it for a token at the Ozzi machines for your next use.

WHAT IS THE REUSABLE TO-GO PROGRAM AT MCGILL FOOD AND DINING SERVICES?

The use of Reusable Preserve 2 Go containers instead of disposable take-out containers helps us reduce the amount of materials on campus that are being sent to the landfill and reduces our overall carbon footprint. Help us make a difference!

HOW DOES IT WORK? FOR STUDENTS AT NRH, RVC, AND LA CITADELLE

• Students need  to exchange their Preserve 2 Go reusable container for a token at the Ozzi machine.
• Once the students have a token, they can go into the servery and ask for their meal to go in the Preserve 2 Go reusable container.
• At the cash, students give in their token and they will not be charged for the container.
• Cashiers are the ONLY ones that handle the tokens.
• Servers will not accept reusable containers from students. Food must ALWAYS be placed in a cleaned and sanitized reusable container from behind the counter.
