Colorado is taking a significant step towards a sustainable future by actively reducing plastic pollution with a polystyrene ban. Embrace eco-friendly alternatives and support our community's commitment to environmental sustainability.
Polystyrene Ban Overview
As of January 1, 2024, the Town of Avon, under Ordinance 21-05, will enforce a polystyrene ban aimed at reducing plastic pollution. The ban prohibits the distribution of polystyrene food containers (including hinged food containers, plates, bowls, cups and trays) within our community.
Packaging of drugs, medical devices or dietary supplements regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, as well as polystyrene products distributions by schools are exempt from the ban as outlined in Ordinance 21-05.
We urge all businesses and residents to proactively transition away from polystyrene containers before the implementation date. Ensure your compliance with this ordinance to contribute to a healthier, cleaner environment for our community.
