On December 9, 2019, SOLA3 and the Rehoboth Beach Homeowners’ Association requested that the Mayor and Commissioners pass an ordinance that would:
- Ban single-use plastic carryout bags used by retailers and restaurants in Rehoboth Beach.
- Require that plastic straws be used “by request only.”
- Ban polystyrene (Styrofoam) containers.
Read our letter to the Mayor and Commissioners here. We asked that the ban go into effect 3-6 months following the State ban on single use plastic bags (Jan. 2021). This will allow local businesses ample time to prepare.
