Maui County Considers Ban On Polystyrene Containers

(Maui, HI) -- Maui County is considering a bill that would ban polystyrene food containers. "KHON 2" reports the Council Infrastructure and Environmental Management Committee will discuss the bill on Monday. The ban would have exemptions for prepared foods packaged outside the county and polystyrene coolers and ice chests. Food providers would also be able to apply for a one-year exemption if they can prove no reasonable alternative or it would cause economic hardship.
