Today, April 14th, 2021 polystyrene take-away containers are now banned. Businesses in Tofino and Ucluelet can no longer provide customers with polystyrene take-away containers, in addition to single-use plastic straws and checkout bags. 

These bylaws intend to reduce single-use plastic waste in our communities, landfill, and marine environment, as well as mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions associated with plastic production and usage.
