HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A ban on disposable bodyboards is now effect in Maui County.

Boards made of polystyrene cannot be sold or rented.

Officials said the ban was created because the boards break easily and spread foam on the beach creating an environmental hazard.

The ban was passed unanimously by the Maui County Council last year.
