The Disposable Food Service Ware and Polystyrene Foam Model Ordinance was developed by Zero Waste Sonoma staff in 2018. City Councils from many jurisdictions were presented the ordinance in 2019 and early 2020, and are expected to adopt the ordinance in the first half of 2020. The remainder of 2020 will be a grace period for restaurants and retailers to sell or use their existing stock of disposable food service and polystyrene foam products. Enforcement will begin in January 2021.
More information and details about the ordinance can be found on this webpage.
