After several years of debate, New York City has banned expanded polystyrene (EPS), commonly called Styrofoam™, which is used to make foam cups, plates, take-out containers, and other disposable food serviceware. It’s estimated that New Yorkers toss out over 60 million pounds of Styrofoam™ each year. Businesses in the city now have a six-month grace period from January 1, 2019 to adjust their practices before they will be fined for violations.
Please join us for a comprehensive webinar hosted by Olga Kachook, Sustainability Manager at World Centric. Olga will cover the details of the ban, discuss how compostable producs will help you meet the ban's requirements, and the environmental benefits of compostables. You will also learn about the city's commercial organics recycling program and what it means for your food service operation. There is no charge for this webinar, but registration is required.
