New Jersey Bag Ban Laws
New Jersey: certain towns are becoming more conscious about the environment, where they are placing restrictions and bans on single use plastic bags. Currently in the United States, there is a growing trend of cities that have passed bag ban laws. For NJ, it is proposed that starting on June 1, 2017, customers will be charged $.05 for every plastic or paper bag. The bill is aimed at larger and chain retailers that have over 2,000 square feet of retail space. In New Jersey, large stores like these are quite popular.
