City of Hollywood Single Use Plastic and Polystyrene Ordinance in Public Parks, Offices and Beaches

Polystyrene foam food-ware and single use plastics are a major source of litter and one of the top items we find on our regular beach cleanups. The Broward County Chapter seeks to ban polystyrene foam food-ware on all City of Hollywood public property.

The Florida Legislature has taken away the ability of cities and counties to ban polystyrene in all areas except municipal property. That's why our Broward Chapter is working with the City of Hollywood to ban polystyrene foam food-ware and single use plastics on all city property. This is a first, but important step for the county to take in reducing plastic pollution.

On February 5, 2020 the City of Hollywood passed an ordinance to keep single use plastics out of City offices, buildings and at city functions and events.
