Styrofoam ban in East Hampton Village goes into effect

Posted: Updated:
EAST HAMPTON -

Starting today, delis and restaurants in East Hampton Village will no longer be allowed to use styrofoam.

The move includes the use of styrofoam "to-go" containers, cups, coolers and trays.

The village hopes the ban on styrofoam products will encourage more environmentally friendly alternatives.

Residents and visitors can still have the products without being penalized.
