MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Leaders in St. Paul have scrapped plans to ban certain food takeout containers.
The city council voted Wednesday against outlawing Styrofoam and plastic to-go boxes.
One council member said she felt the plan unfairly targeted restaurants. She also questioned whether a significant amount of waste actually comes from the packaging.
The city council will now reconsider a ban next year.
A similar ordinance became law in Minneapolis two years ago.
