City Council Public Hearing

Styrofoam Ban and Green Fee
Tuesday, July 8th
Sign up for public comments at 6:30pm, meeting starts at 7pm.
600 – 4th Avenue
Seattle mayor Greg Nickels and City Council President Richard Conlin recently proposed a ban on polystyrene food containers and a ‘green fee’ that will require groceries and pharmacies to charge 20 cents for each disposable paper or plastic bag they hand out. Check out more information on our bag addiction from our friends at Bring Your Own Bag.
This green fee would be the first of its kind in the country. Exciting times, eh? Well, it’s not a done deal yet!
The proposed legislation is going to the city council for a vote and we need your help. Please come to the city council’s public hearing on July 8th at 6:30 and show your support. Even if you don’t want to testify, we need lots of people there!
