NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 19: A food cart worker fills a styrofoam take-out container with food for a customer on December 19, 2013 in New York City. New York's City Council will vote Thursday on a bill that would see expanded polystyrene (EPS), or styrofoam, either banned or added to the city's curbside recycling program. The current version of the bill would give the city's sanitation commissioner until Jan. 1, 2015 to decide whether plastic foam is recyclable. The proposed ban has been met with resistance from the American Chemistry Council and Dart Container among other groups. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
