New York City’s Foam Ban Is Finally In Effect


It’s been more than five years since then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed banning foam products in New York City — and the ban finally went into effect on the first of the year.

Stores and restaurants are expected to cease use of any foam coffee cups, takeout containers, and packing peanuts as soon as possible, but they will not face any consequences until June 30. Come July, any business caught using the prohibited items will face up to a $1,000 fine per offense.
