City of Victoria updates business stakeholders on upcoming single-use changes

November 15, 2022

City of Victoria staff has updated RCC and other business stakeholders on proposals for a bylaw anticipated to go to Council by early December 2022. The bylaw follows their extensive engagement on reducing the use of single-use items.

Victoria’s bylaw will: (a) require food ware accessories such as utensils, stir sticks and straws to be distributed by request; (b) require that businesses use only reusable products for dine-in services; and, (c) impose a mandatory 25 cent fee on disposable cups and containers
