Strict New Litter Rules

Regional regulators have adopted tough new rules that will force Bay Area cities to slash the amount of trash that flows into storm drains and into the bay by 70 percent in the next seven years. The San Francisco Regional Water Quality Control Board also will require that cities eliminate all trash that flows into the bay in twelve years. According to the Chron, the strict new rules, which apply to all East Bay cities, go into effect December 1.
