Styrofoam is one of the most-used plastics in the world.Prohibition of plastic does not fundamentally reduce white pollution.So we still have to do polystyrene recycling.

Rethink>Reduce>Reuse>Recycle, in that order. We can't recycle our way out of our trash mess.
City Council will contemplate an ordinance addressing single use plastics as well as styrofoam in the near future. For those of us who care about reducing the waste stream this is great news. The draft ordinance will go to the Policy Committee next. San Ramon would be joining some of the more forward-looking cities in our region with this ordinance.
