    NEW YORK, NEW YORK (WCBS) — New York City is eliminating plastic utensils, condiment packets and napkins from your takeout order.

The “Skip the Stuff” rule goes into effect Monday. It aims to reduce single-use plastic, most of which ends up in landfills.

Restaurants and online ordering services are not allowed to include them in an order unless specifically requested.

A warning period for the new requirement ends June 30, 2024, then fines will be issued for violations.
