Single-Use Foodware Reduction Working Group

How does this process work?

At the February 11, 2020 Town Council Meeting, Keep Truckee Green staff presented their recommendations for a future Single-Use Foodware Reduction Ordinance. Town Council directed Keep Truckee Green staff to form a working group to evaluate staff recommendations, and to put together an implementation plan for the ordinance. The working group will meet six times in 2022 to formulate recommendations to Council for the prospective ordinance.

All past and future meeting details are publicized on the Town of Truckee’s official calendar at

What are the staff recommendations?

Policies the working group will be considering include:

  1. Ban on expanded polystyrene foodware items
  2. Require restaurants to provide reusable foodware for in-house dining
