What do you think about straws and to-go foodware in Alameda?
On September 19, 2017, the City Council will consider whether to amend Alameda Municipal Code section 4-4:
a) to require food vendors to only offer straws upon a customer’s request, and
b) clarify that all to-go foodware must be either reusable, recyclable, or compostable.
Straws and other non-compostable or non-recyclable disposable foodware become litter on our beaches and streets, clog storm drains, and add waste to our landfills. A food vendor is any restaurant, bar, food truck, or retail business that sells prepared food.
