The proposed Polystyrene Foam Food Service Ware Ordinance is a model ordinance that would regulate the use of polystyrene foam food service ware by restaurants and food service establishments within participating jurisdictions in Sana Clara County. The proposed ordinance would phase-out the use of expanded or extruded polystyrene (EPS) foam food service ware, as adopted by implementing jurisdictions. Restrictions on use would be phased to allow restaurants using EPS food ware to transition to alternative products. Two options for additional regulation of EPS food ware products may also be adopted by any or all of the participating cities or towns and unincorporated Santa Clara County.
