NEW YORK — Westchester County is trying to get the word out about a new law that aims to reduce the consumption of single-use plastics.
The county just released a new video highlighting how this new regulation will work.
“We try to encourage people to need a takeaway cup and if we do, it’s compostable,” the ad says.
Under the new law, businesses in Westchester will only provide utensils when requested by customers. This applies to in-person dining, as well as online ordering and food delivery apps.
The rules go into effect on Sept. 2.
