NYC Foam Ban Enforcement Begins

After a six month warning period, the Department of Sanitation has begun issuing fines to businesses and organizations caught distributing single-use foam products.

First-time offenses carry a $250 fine. Second-time violators will pay $500, and those with three citations within a year will be fined $1000.

Citizens can report violations via the city’s 311 app (instructions here).
