Event description

Description

In collaboration with the County of San Mateo’s Environmental Health Division, the County's Office of Sustainability (OOS) has developed a draft Disposable Food Service Ware Ordinance (Ordinance). The objectives of the proposed Ordinance are to:

(1) Eliminate the unnecessary distribution and use of disposable food service ware that is not reusable or compostable;
(2) Improve the health and safety of our San Mateo County community members by eliminating disposable food service ware that is harmful; and
(3) Help meet our regional stormwater permit requirement by reducing litter on our streets that ends up in our stormwater discharges.

Please join us to learn more, ask questions, and provide feedback on the proposed Ordinance. Restaurants and other food facilities in unincorporated areas of San Mateo County are highly encouraged to participate!

Spanish translation will be provided at the workshop.

You can also find more information about the County’s proposed Disposable Food Service Ware Ordinance on the OOS website: https://www.smcsustainability.org/waste-reduction/reduce-reuse-recycle/#Disposables

Please email sustainability@smcgov.org for any questions about the workshop or the proposed Ordinance.
