Food Service Packaging
In 2009, the Issaquah City Council adopted a law requiring food service businesses (including restaurants, grocers, coffee shops and other food sellers) to only use recyclable or compostable food service containers and service ware, and provide compost and recycling collection for customers. Foods that are pre-packaged before they are received by a business are not included in this law. View the City of Issaquah city ordinance and view and download an informational flyer (PDF).
