Discussion: Styrofoam

More cities around the country are banning or discouraging the use of Styrofoam takeout containers at restaurants. Earlier this year, the City of Minneapolis banned Styrofoam containers, requiring take-out food be placed in reusable, recyclable or compostable containers. In December 2014, the City asked what you though about banning plastic bags.

This month, the City wants to know what you think about banning Styrofoam containers.


NOTE: The City is not proposing any changes to local law at this time. By using this online discussion, feedback on topics will be compiled and given to the City Council as information only.
