Styrofoam & plastic ware is banned from restaurants.
Any way you spin it, whatever take-out is packaged in will still be overflowing from hotel dumpsters.
..or spilling out of restaurant’s trash cans

The ban applies to city contractors and special-event promoters using disposable food-service ware. Foods prepared or packaged outside Pacific Grove are exempt, as are ice chests, coolers, other containers meant to be reused, and shipping containers.
Ryan Kenny of the American Chemistry Council told the council that supporters of the ban did not provide scientific evidence that it does more harm to the environment than other packaging or food service containers, and that switching to alternatives “will replace one type of litter with another.” Organic containers buried in landfills, he said, produce methane gas that can harm the environment.
