On July 1, 2011, the City of Livermore's Ordinance banning Styrofoam® 'to-go' containers for foodservice businesses officially took effect. By switching to recyclable and compostable take-out alternatives, Livermore's businesses will be reducing both litter and water pollution. The City applauds foodservice businesses that have already discontinued the use of Styrofoam. Wondering how you too can make the switch?
