RECYCLING: We have switched from disposable kitchenware to compostable kitchenware. Are we still required to buy permanent kitchenware?
Yes, businesses must use permanent (or durable) kitchenware, including plates, cups, and cutlery. Disposable kitchenware is accepted in limited cases, for example restaurant to-go containers, or for special events (although durables are still preferred). All disposables must be either compostable or recyclable in San Francisco's composting and recycling program.
