Customers can bring reusable containers to bring home leftovers from restaurants, provided they transfer the food into the container at the table.
Reusable container initiative
City staff are working with Vancouver Coastal Health on a reusable container initiative in Vancouver.
The initiative will launch once Vancouver Coastal Health develops a guideline allowing restaurants to:
- Create a documented procedure that maintains sanitary conditions.
- Get the procedure approved by Vancouver Coastal Health.
- Fill take-out orders in reusable containers brought in by customers.
