ENVIRONMENT: Pleasantville Reusable Bag Initiative

Single-use plastic shopping bags are a chronic litter and pollution problem. While they offer a few minutes of convenience, the damage they can cause is lasting. PleasantvilleRecycles, the Village's recycling committee, proposes that Pleasantville join New Castle, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, the city of Rye, and many other municipalities, states, and countries around the world to adopt an ordinance that will encourage customers to use reusable bags by restricting the availability of single-use plastic shopping bags and imposing a fee on paper bags. Doing so will help make Pleasantville a cleaner and safer place to live.
