Styrofoam is no longer illegal in New York City, a Manhattan judge ruled Tuesday — nixing Mayor de Blasio’s first major environmental initiative. The city banned all businesses in the five boroughs from using styrofoam containers in July after Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia determined that the packaging can’t be recycled if it is soiled with food.
On Tuesday, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Margaret Chan said there is clear evidence showing that this isn’t true. Experts hired by the Restaurant Action Alliance, which sued to overturn the ban, made a persuasive case, she said.
“The Commissioner's concern is not justified given abundant evidence showing a viable and growing market for not just clean EPS (expanded polystyrene foam) but post consumer EPS material,” Chan said.
