Under this draft ordinance, all businesses, non-profits, organizations, or individuals that provides retail food to its customers would be required to use food ware and accessories that can be composted. Food ware and accessories includes containers, coolers, bowls, plates, trays, cartons, cups, lids, straws, stirrers, utensils, napkins, condiment cups and packets, cocktail picks, toothpicks, cup sleeves, tops, spill plugs, packaging, food wrappers, beverage trays, tray liners, and plate liners.  In addition, the ordinance makes changes to Chapter 5. 70 of the County Code, regarding regulations on single-use plastic bags, to align it with State requirements.
