Public Input Session Hosted by the Zero Waste Commission’s Foodware Subcommittee

2:30-4pm
West Branch Public Library Community Meeting Room @ 1125 University Ave, Berkeley

The City of Berkeley Zero Waste Commission invites you to provide input on a proposed City of Berkeley Ordinance designed to reduce single-use, disposable foodware and litter. City of Berkeley Councilmember Sophie Hahn, or one of her representatives, will provide an introduction to the proposed Ordinance. A presentation will follow to explain the key aspects of the proposed Ordinance, including case studies of businesses that have successfully reduced single-use, disposable foodware. Public and stakeholder input will be solicited from 3-4pm.

Background: On April 24, 2018, Berkeley City Council referred a proposed Berkeley Single Use Foodware and Litter Reduction Ordinance to the Zero Waste Commission to review, solicit input from the public and key stakeholders (including restaurants and other food retailers), and provide recommendations back to Council.

Additional opportunities for public comment will be scheduled, including a 30 minute public comment session at next regular meeting of the Zero Waste Commission on July 23 @ 7pm at the North Berkeley Senior Center.

Written public comment is welcomed. If you have questions, if you would like to submit written public comment, or to request notification of additional public input opportunities, please contact Heidi Obermeit, Zero Waste Commission Secretary, at hobermeit@cityofberkeley.info or 510-981-6357. All written public comment will be included in the agenda packet for Commissioner review at the next regular meeting of the Zero Waste Commission.
