The registry would by modeled on the national Do Not Call Registry, according to the resolution, sponsored by supervisors Ross Mirkarimi, Bevan Dufty and David Campos.

Supporters say the idea would reduce tons of waste and has wide national support, and several other states have already proposed similar measures.

The board's City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee will consider the resolution at 1 p.m. at City Hall.
