Public Hearing - “Mamaroneck Bag Waste Reduction” law.

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

LEGAL NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that pursuant to Section 130 of the Town Law of the State of NY, a Public Hearing will be held on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 8:00 PM or as soon thereafter as is possible at the Town Center, 740 W. Boston Post Road, Mamaroneck, NY to consider: “Mamaroneck Bag Waste Reduction” law. The State of NY amended article 27 of the Environmental Conservation Law by adding a new Title 28 (Bag Waste Reduction) which will become effective on March 1, 2020. The purpose of this local law is to incorporate the new state law into the laws of the Town of Mamaroneck. The Town Board determines that a shift to reusable bags in most retail transactions will benefit the overall health, safety and welfare of the Town and the environment. The Town Board also finds that a fee for using non-reusable bags is essential if there is to be a transition to reusable bags because such a fee will encourage consumers to use reusable bags rather than bags for which a fee is charged.
