EAST AURORA, N.Y. (WIVB)–Plastic straws and stirrers are no longer allowed in East Aurora.

A ban went into effect yesterday and that means from now on, straws have to be compostable.

Businesses that don’t provide these straws will receive a warning for their first violation. After that, they’ll be fined $100.

The penalties go up with more violations.
