The City Council approved revisions to Municipal Code Chapter 8.68 that require all restaurants and food vendors operating in the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea to utilize compostable or recyclable options for disposable food packaging, and to only provide straws and utensils upon request.
Dumping any pollutants, including wash water, paint, oil, sediment and trash, into the gutter or the storm drain system is ILLEGAL. Local ordinances limit storm water flows to clean rain water and non-polluted groundwater. Please do your part to protect local waterways!
