Foam Ban


Mayor de Blasio announced that the City's ban on single-use foam products will go into effect by January 1, 2019, following the dismissal of a lawsuit preventing the implementation of the ban.

This means that food service establishments, stores, mobile food commissaries, and manufacturers may not possess, sell, or offer for use single service Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam food service articles or loose fill packaging, such as "packing peanuts" in New York City beginning in 2019.
