The City of Largo is Going Plastic Free

Turtle Plastic Bag
Reduce Your Use, Ditch the Plastic
The City of Largo is committed to developing and implementing initiatives that promote local environmental, economic, and sustainability practices. As single-use plastics are common pollutants that pose health and environmental risks to wildlife, and litter streets, parks, and public spaces, the City has gone #PlasticFree with Ordinance 2019-19. 

As of July 1, 2019, the following single-use plastics are no longer permitted to be distributed on City property:

·Any Styrofoam™ products (cups, plates, bowls, clamshells, to-go boxes, etc)
·Plastic straws and stirrers (including the use of bio-plastic straws)
·Plastic utensils
·Plastic plates, cups, and bowls 
Instead, ocean-friendly items such as compostable serve-ware will be used. This transition highlights our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment, supporting local business and providing equitable access to resources and the environment in order to ensure a sustainable future for generations. This does not impact private rentals or individual behaviors.
