Effective in June 2007, San Francisco banned all polystyrene foam or “Styrofoam” from being used in restaurants. They follow several other cities such as Berkeley and Oakland to create a ban, with many other cities now following suit. The foam cannot be recycled and is not compostable. According to city officials, Styrofoam littering the streets was reduced by about one-third from 2007-2008.
