City Council to Look at Use of Polystyrene Containers

The Novato City Council meets Tuesday and on the agenda is a proposed ordinance prohibiting the use of polystyrene foam disposable food packaging.

Frequently not recyclable, the containers have been routinely pointed out as one of the top threats to the environment. For restaurants, however, they are an inexpensive means of packaging food.

The issue will be tackled Tues., April 23 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 901 Sherman Avenue.
