Take-Out Food Packaging Reimagined

Innovative companies like Dispatch Goods handle collection, washing and redistribution of reusable take-out food ware.

As Alameda County reopens and on-site dining returns, reusable dishware and food service accessories continue to be allowed and are safe to use. Did you know that there are also many options to reduce disposable food service ware for take-out? StopWaste is inviting restaurants and other food service operators to weigh in on a new grant program for these services.
