City To Enforce Plastic Straw Ban With Exceptions For Disability Community

The sustainability packaging ordinance (Municipal Code Section 6-6.100) prohibits food service providers to use and distribute straws unless specifically requested, a rule which has been in effect since January 2020.  

This rule applies to restaurants, grocery stores, farmers markets, food trucks, special events and any other business or event where food is sold to go. This law will be enforced and businesses will receive citations and fines for non-compliance. For more information about this ordinance, please visit our website.

Join other businesses that have already stopped using straws, and show your commitment to keep the environment clean! Your business can lead the way, don’t wait for your customers to ask you to comply. This is not only good for the environment, it is also good for your business!
