The program is designed to encourage and enable businesses like yours to take small steps to reduce their use and distribution of single-use and takeaway items such as straws, eating utensils, beverage cups, shopping bags, polystyrene foam and black plastic containers.
The federal government has already enacted a Single-Use Plastics Prohibition Regulation to ban and restrict some of these items.
The proposed mandatory measures (i.e. bylaws) for the Single-Use and Takeaway Items Reduction Strategy will be presented for City Council consideration in 2023.
