City of Edmonton passed this bylaw which affects us in many ways.   For instance:

  • Single-use plastic shopping bags can no longer be distributed.
  • Businesses must charge at least $0.15 for a paper bag (increase to $0.25 on July 1, 2024)
  • Businesses must charge at least $1 for new reusable shopping bags.
  • Foam plates, cups, bowls, containers, etc can no longer be used.
  • Businesses may only provide disposable foodware accessories of any material upon request or by self-serve (eg. Cutlery, condiments, straws, napkins).


Blue Willow Restaurant will follow the above restrictions.  When you order food pickup or delivery, please let us know:

  • if you want condiments (soya sauce, plum sauce packets), cutlery, napkins
  • if you are bringing your own containers for the food orders
  • if you are bringing your own bag to pick up your order
  • be aware that we must charge 15 cents for a paper bag


Together, we will reduce wastage and make public spaces more enjoyable.  Thank you.
