St. Paul City Council rejects ban on non-compostable food takeout containers
October 12, 2017
Despite a year of staff outreach and planning, the St. Paul City Council has voted against proposed rules that would restrict restaurants and retailers from offering non-compostable food takeout containers.
The proposed ban on non-compostable or non-recyclable to-go packaging failed on a 5-2 vote. Council President Russ Stark and Council Member Amy Bredmoen cast the sole votes in favor of the ordinance, which Stark had supported for months.
