Bloomberg wants to ban Styrofoam products before he leaves office

NEW YORK (PIX11) – Mayor Bloomberg is rushing a proposed ban on Styrofoam in New York City before he leaves office.

On Monday, the City Council’s Sanitation Committee will hold a meeting on the bill.

The measure was first proposed over the summer.

Supporters say the ban is necessary because foam containers are non-biodegradable, can’t be recycled and spoil the environment.

But opponents claim the move is just another Bloomberg nanny initiative that will lead to more costly alternative products.
