Single-Use Items Consultation

Council asked City staff to invite Port Moody business licence holders to share concerns they may have about eliminating the use of single-use items such as beverage cups, straws, food containers, utensils, and shopping bags. In March and April 2019, the City gathered input from business owner/operators via an online survey. Thank you to everyone who participated. City staff plan to present a report to Council on the single-use items consultation in May 2019.

Single-use items are products and packaging that we throw away or recycle after just one use. These items can end up in our landfills and in our oceans and rivers, where they contaminate our soil and water. While there are no draft City bylaws currently under consideration related single-use products or packaging in Port Moody, Council will consider the input received from business licence holders when making any future recommendations or decisions on this issue.

Under Metro Vancouver’s Zero Waste strategy, member municipalities are seeking support from the provincial government to develop a single-use items reduction strategy.
