You’re really in trouble now if you provide more than 16 ounces of soda in a styrofoam cup. Seriously, is there no end to the meddling of this tiny tyrant?
First he dictated the size of our cups — now he wants to ban what they’re made of.
The Bloomberg administration is considering banning Styrofoam cups and containers — popular at thousands of delis and food carts across the city— as it prepares to roll out a major recycling announcement in the coming weeks, a Sanitation Department official said yesterday.
“We’re studying all the different things in our waste stream. We want to make sure that everything in our waste stream is recyclable,” Ron Gonen, deputy commissioner for recycling at Sanitation, told The Post.
Makes you wonder why anyone would waste time opening a business in the town formerly know as Fun City.
But opponents — many of them restaurant and cart owners — have blasted the measure as unnecessarily intrusive.
Similar local proposals to ban Styrofoam have stalled in the City Council and many restaurateurs don’t welcome the idea of yet another restriction on their business.
