A Resolution Announcing the City Of Savannah's Intent to Protect its Nature, Waterways and Neighborhood Streets Through Management of Acceptable Single Use Packaging and Products (Non-Essential Plastics Typically Used Once Before Disposal including Plastic Bags, Straws, Coffee Stirrers, Cups, Utensils and Most Plastic Food Packaging)
Strategic Priority
Good Government

Recognizing the negative impact that the manfacture and use of single use plastics have on our natural environment, waterways, food systems, human health and greenhouse gas emissions, this resolution serves to phase out single use plastics and expanded polystyrene foam products from City operations where practicable within one year of passage. For the pursposes of this resolution, single use plastics shall be defined as non-essential plastics typically used once before disposal that include plastic bags, straws, coffee stirrers, cups, utensils and most plastic food packaging, for which broadly available alternatives are available.
