Lawmakers in Montgomery County are proposing legislation that would ban the use of plastic foam food containers.
Mayor Vincent Gray plans to sign a bill that would ban the use of plastic foam food containers in the District of Columbia.
Twenty years ago, Jim Foster says, the Anacostia Watershed Society was busy trying to get tires out of the river. Now that the big stuff is more or less gone, and dumping has been made a felony, AWS’s focus is on the smaller stuff.
If a proposal from D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray succeeds, residents will get their take-out food in something other than Styrofoam by 2018.
