What are the requirements for reusable foodware?

Food Vendors with dishwashing capacity must serve “dine-in” orders using reusable foodware.  Customers may bring their own clean durable reusable containers for food orders “to-go” and must receive a $0.25 minimum discount on their order. Only one discount can be applied per order and must appear as its own line item on the receipt. Food vendors can refuse to accept reusable foodware that is not suitable, such as cracked, chipped, corroded, appear inappropriate in size, material, or condition for the intended use, or that appear unsanitary or soiled .
