Where do I exchange my used container?
Each participating business should have a designated area to receive used containers. The Ashland Food Co-op the drop off is located near the Deli registers. At participating restaurants, let your server know you have a container to exchange.
How do I use the token?
When returning your household-clean container, you can choose to exchange the container for a token. This token can be exchanged for a sanitized container at any of the five participating businesses. The token has no monetary value and cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. 
Can I skip the exchange and use the container from my last visit?

No, food safety regulations require that you exchange the used container for one sanitized by the participating business.
Please pre-wash the container in your possession and return it to a participating business. They will have a supply of clean and sanitized containers ready for a quick exchange. Complying with this regulation is important to continue offering the Rogue To Go program

Where can I use my Rogue To Go container or token?
You can exchange your token or household-clean container at any of the five participating businesses: Ashland Food Co-op, Simple Cafe, Sesame Asian Kitchen, Pie and Vine, or Falafel Republic.
Are Rogue To Go containers BPA free and dishwasher safe?
Yes, O2GO containers are BPA-free. They are NSF certified and FDA approved. They are safe for dishwashers, microwaves, and freezers. They are made locally in Albany, Oregon by OZZI.
Why does Rogue To Go use a plastic container?

The Rogue To Go containers are made of BPA- and BPS-free polypropylene #5, which is generally considered one of the safest choices for plastic products. This plastic is highly resistant to heat transfer and is super durable – the container manufacturer states they may be used up to 1,000x before they need to be retired from service. At the end of their usable lives, O2GO uses a specialty recycler in order to properly dispose of containers so that our service is truly zero waste. While by no means perfect, this plastic container is lightweight, durable, and recyclable. Every time you use this recyclable plastic container, you are diverting single-use from the landfill. We think that’s a great choice!

Rogue To Go is a pilot program is being pioneered by the participating businesses listed above. Our participants have determined the OZZI brand containers are a good starting point for this program. We recognize that plastic is not perfect, but the OZZI container offers significant environmental benefits and are a good value. In the future, the Rogue To Go collective may elect to use a different type of container. The OZZI website offers additional details about the containers.

What happens if I lose my container or break it?

If you lose your container but wish to still be in the program, you will be required to purchase a new container. Participating businesses will remove from circulation any containers that become damaged or are no longer usable. You will be responsible for purchasing a replacement container if the container you’re exchanging is damaged beyond normal wear and tear.
What if I forget to bring my container or token?

To receive a sanitized container at our exchange location you will need to bring us your home-cleaned container, or a token.

How much does the container cost?
Each Rogue To Go program exchangeable container (or token) costs $10 to start. If you used a clamshell container for a sandwich at your last visit, you can exchange it for another clamshell, a soup container, or a token to exchange for a container in the future at any Rogue To-Go program participant.
