York Bag Ordinance Takes Effect March 3

On November 3, 2015 the voters of York voted in favor of adopting the Single-Use Plastic Carry-Out Bag Ordinance that prohibits single-use carry out plastic bags provided by retailers at checkout throughout the Town. This memorandum includes important information to help you understand how this change affects your business and how to meet the new requirements. The ordinance will take effect on March 3, 2016.

Bring Your Own Bag (BYOB) has developed three documents which provide ideas for ways retail businesses, consumers, and lodging providers can turn the challenge of the implementation of the bag ordinance into an opportunity. These three files are the core of a new section just added to the www.BYOBYork.org website called Resources. There is additional content in the resources section as well. A link direct to that section is: www.BYOBYork.org/resources/.
