City of Berkeley Cracks Down on Single-Use Cups with 25 Cent Fee

January 23, 2018 from the Daily Coffee News:

"City officials in the coffee-loving city of Berkeley, California, have passed an ordinance requiring businesses to charge a 25 cent fee for single-use paper cups."
"Taking effect in January 2020, the ordinance will require disposable straws, lids, stirrers, cup spill plugs, napkins and utensils to also be compostable. Those items are to be made available only by request or at self-serve stations. Also according to the ordinance, all take-out food ware also must be compostable, all dine-in food ware must be reusable, and hardship waivers will be available for special circumstances."
"If you bring your own container, you have to have that charge removed."
