Single-Use Reduction Report

Over the last several years, the Truckee community has expressed interest in policies to limit single-use straws and polystyrene (Styrofoam). In response, Keep Truckee Green has done extensive research and received community feedback on the best strategies to make a positive impact in our community. As it turns out, single-use foodware strategies are not as simple as a Styrofoam or straw ban. Keep Truckee Green has compiled a report to provide information on this complex issue to Truckee community members and business owners.

This report will be presented and discussed at the Truckee Town Council Meeting on Tuesday, February 11 at 6 pm. Please join us to learn more and provide feedback to the Town Council. 

Public comment can be submitted in person at the meeting, or electronically here (for Agenda Item #7.1). Town Council Meetings can also be viewed live at this link.
