(d) Waivers. Any Event Producer may petition the Director for a full or partial waiver of the requirements of this Section 1611 as they apply to a particular Event, if the Event Producer can (1) demonstrate that the Event Producer is not able to access Reusable Beverage Cups for the Event, or (2) that the application of this Section would create undue hardship or practical difficulty for the Event Producer that is not generally applicable to other Event Producers in similar circumstances.
