Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We’re proud to be working with Alternative Recycling Systems to compost most  of our food and paper waste. All of our cardboard is recycled and all of our plastics, cans and bottles are recycled thereby reducing our waste going to the landfill. During the last two years we have begun to use compostable forks knives and spoons for takeout. Most of our takeout containers are now compostable paper and most recently we have found a compostable straw. We have greatly reduced the amount of trash we are generating, mostly by composting.
