Avon de­lays plas­tic foam ban.

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST -

AVON» A town con­sid­er­ing the state’s first ban on plas­tic foam food con­tain­ers has de­layed a de­ci­sion on the pro­posal.

Vail Daily re­ports that elected of­fi­cials in Avon say there is sup­port for a Sty­ro­foam ban, but not enough to move for­ward on it.

Avon of­fi­cials say they will work on ed­u­ca­tion and outreach about a ban and re­visit the ban in Septem­ber.

Res­i­dents de­bated the pro­posal last week at a Town Coun­cil meet­ing. Coun­cil mem­bers say they want to ex­plore whether the mea­sure should also ad­dress non-re­cy­clable dis­pos­able cof­fee cups.
