Plastic Bag Information

Most thin-film plastic bags can go to Market Basket or Shaw’s for recycling.
The City's ban on single-use, thin-film plastic bags was codified on October 1, 2014.  The ordinance gives the City 3 months to issue regulations and another 3 months to implement.  Implementation will become effective on March 29, 2015.  The ordinance, regulations, the census handout, an FYI, and a sample sign are posted below.
