Styrofoam ban approved in Brookline
Vote boots Styrofoam
A special Town Meeting voted Tuesday to ban the use of Styrofoam in the town for takeout food containers and beverages. The Town Meeting elected to prohibit the use of disposable polystyrene, also known by its trademarked name Styrofoam, for food and beverages packaged in food service establishments in Brookline. As a result, Dunkin’ Donuts and other restaurants that serve hot coffee in plastic foam cups will have to use an alternative cup in town, beginning in December of 2013.
