A Hawaii County Council committee is expected to revisit restrictions for plastic foam food containers.

Environmental Management Committee members are set to discuss the proposal Tuesday afternoon, according to a report Friday by West Hawaii Today.

Council members killed a measure regarding plastic foam containers in a 4-4 vote last year.

The Council now has four new members.

Puna Councilwoman Eileen O’Hara is the bill sponsor and says she hopes the measure gets a different response with new faces on the Council.
