Restaurants are expected to provide customers with paper or other natural fiber straws.
Only people with a disability or medical need can request a plastic straw.
Plastic stirrers and toothpicks are also banned.
Other single-use food accessories -- like napkins, condiment packages and chopsticks -- are available upon request.
