Good News in NYC! NYC has announced a “grace period” lasting from July 1, 2015 until January 1, 2016 during which they will NOT issue fines or penalties for business that use foam foodservice containers. Also, nonprofits and small businesses (not part of a chain) with less than $500,000 in revenue per year may apply for hardship exemptions from the Department of Small Business Services (SBS) if they can prove that the purchase of alternative products not composed of EPS would create undue financial hardship.
