Food will also be packed using fully microwaveable and recyclable containers. We would ask that you return the cooler bag with the used containers so we can recycle these when we drop off your fresh meal. For clients ordering food on a less regular basis your food will be dropped off in recyclable packaging in a brown paper-bag.
Clients are also encouraged to recycle these brown paper bags & any plastic food boxes by handing them to your driver on delivery
