Effective January 1, 2019: Plastic Bag and Polystyrene Container Ban

Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken would like to remind all business establishments per Section 9-13 of the City Code of Ordinance effective January 1, 2019. No retail establishments shall provide a single-use plastic bag to a customer unless the bag complies with the requirements of being either a recyclable paper bag, a compostable and marine-degradable plastic bag, or reusable checkout bag. The polystyrene clam containers are also being banned and will follow the same guidelines as the plastic bags.

(Please note as of 11/13/2018 the language in the online version of the Code of Ordinances has not been updated to reflect the polystyrene container ban.)
