As of July 2024, restaurants will be prohibited from automatically providing plastic utensils and condiment packets customers unless requested, under a bill approved by the City Council in January. The legislation is aimed at reducing the number of single-use plastics that end up in sewers and landfills. By only providing such items upon request, it also reduces restaurant costs.
