Rally Against Styrofoam

  • New York City Council City Hall Park New York, NY 10007 United States (map)

Join members of the MSWAB at a rally to oppose Intro 1480, a bill that would require the City to recycle polystyrene foam food and beverage containers. This material is bad for human health, bad for the environment, and cannot be easily recycled. Other municipalities have banned the use of this material, but some local legislators and foam industry lobbyists are moving toward requiring the City to encourage the use here by deeming it "recyclable".
