Plastic Bag Ban Quickly Approaching….Reusable Bags Available!

Release Date: February 07, 2022

Mendham Borough’s ECOSST Commission with the support of New Jersey Clean Communities and the “Bag Up NJ” Campaign have reusable shopping bags available for residents to pick up at the Phoenix House and Bowers Building during regular business hours.  Please stop by and help yourself before the plastic bag ban goes into effect.

 

The “Bag Up NJ” Campaign is New Jersey Clean Communities Council’s new single use plastic and paper bag ban outreach campaign, which has a simple message: Bring your own reusable bag(s) when you shop.

 

Beginning May 4, 2022, all stores (including retail), food service businesses and grocery stores are prohibited from selling to or providing their customers with single use plastic carryout bags.  In addition, grocery stores larger than 2,500 square feet may not provide or sell single use carryout paper bags.
