Are Single Use Plastic Bags On Way Out In Cape May County?

Cape May has moved closer to enacting an ordinance regulating single-use plastic bags and other plastic packaging. According to the Cape May County Herald, the city has to decide on the scope of the regulations in terms of the range of products. Another issue discussed involved timing, and centered on the need for notice to local businesses that may be in the process of ordering supplies for next summer. A related issue to timing was the potential establishment of a limited exemption process for businesses who would not have used up existing supplies by an implementation date of an ordinance.
