New York City’s ban on plastic foam is now in effect. The ban, effects restaurants, city school cafeterias, and street carts. The ban goes into effect on July 1, with a six-month grace period during which businesses won't be fined for using the containers. Businesses and nonprofits with an annual revenue of $500,000 or less can be exempted from the ban, but will have to prove that the use of materials besides plastic foam would cause them financial hardship.
The ban applies to single-use food packing products, including takeout containers and coffee cups. It also applies to so-called 'packing peanuts.'
