Ban polystyrene takeaway boxes

I am seeing is polystyrene takeaway boxes every time I go on my dog walks . We know how bad this is for our environment, it cannot be recycled , so why are we still allowing it to be used! Many places have made the change to compostable, cardboard or just plastic free alternative, which we witness down in Cornwall. Therefore by banning the polystyrene boxes as well as single use plastic takeaway cutlery it would greatly help this issue, with less items going to landfill from Torfaen. 

Why the contribution is important

Polystyrene cannot be recycled, and when broken down will enter our environment and oceans, impacting on the wildlife. Banning them in Torfaen seems to be the only way forward.
