Portland City Council directed the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) to develop a strategy to reduce single-use plastics and other disposable items – including plastic straws – and to create an inclusive policy development process.
A small work group was formed to help the initial development of the single-use plastic reduction policy. That groups consists of businesses, advocates and people with disabilities. Meetings are happening in July and August to form a recommendation for Mayor Wheeler to consider. Staff from the mayor’s office and BPS will facilitate the conversation and document the feedback.
Once the recommendation from the work group is complete, staff will look to the community to provide additional feedback to the policy.
Your input on the proposed policy is very important, we want to hear from you. You can take a survey, call, email, or sign up for email updates on how the project is going:
