Invitation to Participate in the City of Toronto Reducing Single-Use Program
The City of Toronto invites you to join the Reducing Single-Use program (RSU). The program is designed to encourage and enable businesses like yours to take small steps to reduce their use and distribution of single-use and takeaway items such as straws, eating utensils, beverage cups, shopping bags, polystyrene foam and black plastic containers.
- The federal government has already enacted a Single-Use Plastics Prohibition Regulation to ban and restrict some of these items.
- The proposed mandatory measures (i.e. bylaws) for the Single-Use and Takeaway Items Reduction Strategy will be presented for City Council consideration in 2023.
