Thank you to the Montgomery County Council, the County Executive, and all of you who stood up for Rock Creek! On January 20, the Council passed a bill that will ban the use and sale of most polystyrene products in Montgomery County. Furthermore, the bill requires the use of recyclable or compostable single-use disposable food service ware such as plates, cups, and eating utensils. Nearly 80% of Rock Creek is located in Montgomery County, and polystyrene products make up as much as a third of the trash found and collected in and around the creek. Rock Creek Conservancy and its supporters helped push for this important legislation. We encourage you to thank the entire Council for their action.
