[China Packaging News] previously, the New York City Government will begin to ban EPS foam packaging in November. Although the materials are technically recyclable, they are not cost-effective. On September 12, some restaurants, recyclers and manufacturers jointly sued to try to prevent New York City from expanding the ban on polystyrene food packaging for the second time
New York issued a ban to ignore the benefits of EPS recycling. The enterprise alliance sued to protest
however, the enterprise alliance believed that the city was flouting the ruling of the New York state court in 2015, overturning the previous ban of wiping the city with clean gauze, and said that the material could be effectively recycled
Randy mastro, chief lawyer of the business department, said: "the de brasio government should abide by the court's instructions, give up the latest wrong attempts, and implement the comprehensive recovery plan proposed by industry participants and supported by finance."
"in fact, the comprehensive plan to recycle all poly (e.g. styrene with a tolerance zone of 0.8mm) will be more environmentally friendly and economically feasible than the limited ban on soft foam, thus saving cities millions of dollars in landfill costs and protecting many small catering enterprises that rely on soft foam"
the organization brought a lawsuit to the Supreme Court, which is the trial court in New York. The Supreme Court of New York state is called the court of appeal
the business group believes that the EPS alternative will cost urban enterprises and consumers US $51million per year, and said that it may cause environmental problems such as solid waste due to the emission of green gases
the New York City Department of health did not immediately comment on the lawsuit, but in the ban report issued on May 12, it said that EPS in the food industry "cannot be recycled in New York City in an economically feasible or environmentally friendly way"
New York City believes that recycled food foam may be "worthless" when it arrives at recycling facilities, because it is covered in food residues and broken into small pieces, so it is difficult to find buyers of recycled materials
"this is the experience of dsny and several other large cities that also try to recycle edible foamed plastics." The experience of New York City will be different, which has no basis
however, enterprises believe that New York City has chosen to release information, and said that the city is spreading "false claims that polystyrene foam is not recyclable"
they believe that this ban will increase the purchase cost of plastic foam substitutes by about $11.2 million per year, and a recycling plan proposed by dart container company will save millions of dollars in landfill avoidance costs and generate millions of revenue
allen Shaw, President of EPS recycled plastics company (algb/t 3098.4 (2) 000 fastener mechanical properties nut fine tooth rib an Shaw), said: "New York City once again ignored the fact that polystyrene foam can be recycled, and refused to make up for the huge economic losses of the city through recycling and landfill."
