Three Easy Steps to Becoming a Member and Getting Your Grub On.

DOWNLOAD THE ENCORA APP.

GET YOUR GRUB

Use the app to find a participating Encora restaurant and let them know you’d like your food and/or drink served in a Encora container. During checkout, scan the QR code on the top of the Box or side of the cup.  We charge a small deposit until the container is returned.

LOCATE ONE OF OUR SMART OR SIMPLE COLLECTION BINS

Use the app to locate one of our network connected smart collection stations on campus, at the airport or in our metropolitan area locations. Our user interface will guide you through the return process and your container will be automatically checked in.

The Problem?  Only 9% of single use food packaging gets recycled.
