[ARCHIVED] Bowie Businesses - Please Join the Foam Free in PGC Webinar


Starting July 1, 2016, polystyrene (commonly referred to as "Styrofoam"), polystyrene loose fill packaging (also known as "packing peanuts") and other foam articles are not permitted for sale or use in Prince George's County. The County is requiring the use of non-foam food packaging products that are environmentally-friendly. There are many non-foam food packaging alternatives (such as recyclable and compostable containers that are rigid plastic or paper-based), and this ban will help to reduce the amount of foam waste entering the landfill and local waterways.
