I want to bring up the problem about how Pilot House does not use reusable plates. Every time I go to Pilot House, they always have cardboard containers and styrofoam cups and both of those are not reusable. Pilot House instead they use a bunch of cardboard plates that get thrown away almost everyday. In my opinion, I feel like they should use the empty counter space next to the drink machine to be a dish washing station. They could get real plates so they could clean them then reuse them for the more food that they put out. They could also use reusable cups and real plates instead of the cardboard ones, they could save money which would be better for them. Using real plates and real cups would also be better for the environment because they would not be wasting so much cardboard and styrofoam that is thrown away each day. They can not recycle the cardboard and styrofoam because it has food and drink contaminate on it. All the other dining halls on campus use real plates and reusable cups which makes you wonder why Pilot House does not use real plates. Maybe they do not want to spend money on a dishwasher but they are probably wasting more money in the long run with buy the cardboard plates. They do not even have to buy a dish washing machine, they could just hire somebody to clean the dishes.
