Read how the single-use plastics reduction policy was developed.
In June 2018, Portland City Council directed the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) to develop a strategy to reduce single-use plastics and invite feedback from community members, hospitals and care facilities, and businesses that stock and supply straws.
In November 2018, BPS and Mayor’s staff presented findings from the public engagement and research of other city policies. The report is a summary of the findings and recommended next steps.
