Plastic Bans US

New York Ban on Polystyrene Starts

New York City's ban on single-use styrofoam products took effect on New Year's Day.

Restaurants, stores and manufacturers are no longer allowed to use the foam products to package food or fill packaging.

The city will not start fining vendors until July 1. Until then, businesses who still use the plastic foam packaging will receive warnings.
