Resolution to reduce single-use plastics

In June 2018, Portland City Council directed the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) to develop a strategy to reduce single-use plastics and invite feedback from community members, hospitals and care facilities, and businesses that stock and supply straws.

BPS met with interested and affected stakeholders during July and August 2018.
