COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update
April 9, 2020: The start dates for the single-use item by-laws for straws, utensils, cups, and shopping bags remain unchanged.
However, we're suspending education, outreach, and enforcement for these by-laws until further notice.
The City's priority is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuring essential services continue uninterrupted.
Effective Jan 1, 2021, a minimum fee of $0.25 must be charged for each single-use beverage cup distributed.
