$0.25 Cup Charge Starting November 10th

Tiburon and Mill Valley have both adopted the Reusable Foodware Ordinance introduced by Marin County. The ordinance includes a $0.25 charge for non-reusable cups to help reduce single use waste. Businesses who provide take away food services keep this money to help their transition to more sustainable foodware. Enforcement of this ordinance begins November 10th. View the visual guide for the ordinance

This tool from the Marin Climate and Energy Partnership (MCEP) is an interactive map that shows how each jurisdiction is doing in terms of sustainable development.
