Reusable Bag Law - February 2018

Plastic bags have been one of the most common litter items found in our waterways, and plastic pollution is a growing threat to oceans and marine life. StopWaste’s reusable bag law is designed to:

  • Reduce litter in our local waterways
  • Promote use of reusable bags to prevent waste
  • Save cities money on litter and storm drain cleanup
  • Decrease the number of bags going to landfill
