San Diego officials proposed banning polystyrene food and drink containers Thursday, potentially becoming the 117th city in California to ban the foam packages, the Los Angeles Times reports.

“A ban would only create more mixed paper and would do nothing to help the environment, reduce landfill waste or actually create solutions for a more stable and thriving recycling industry,” Chris Duggan, the California Restaurant Association’s director of local government affairs for the San Diego chapter, told the LA Times in an email. Polystyrene has been blamed for toxic chemicals found in seafood, according to Fox 5 San Diego.
