Pennington Borough Council Unanimously Approves Phase Out of Single Use Plastic Bags

The Pennington Borough Council unanimously approved a measure to phase out the use of single-use plastic bags by merchants at its meeting on Monday night, May 4. 

Pennington will now begin a six-month period of education and outreach to explain the benefits of moving away from single-use plastic and toward reusable bags instead. The ban will go into effect at the end of this six-month period. Please thank the Council for taking this action by sending an email from here: https://www.penningtonboro.org/contact-borough.html. 

The Hopewell Borough Council voted earlier this year to implement a similar ban on Earth Day (April 22), but in a disappointing move, the Borough decided to delay that action. The Council will be deciding on a new date on which to implement the ban at its meeting on Thursday, May 7th at 7:00 pm. You can participate in the meeting on the Zoom platform at https://us04web.zoom.us/j/217774721 (Meeting ID: 217 774 721). Please encourage the Council to implement the ban as soon as possible.
