Governor Phil Murphy and the New Jersey Legislature enacted the most progressive bag ban law in the country starting May 4, 2022. The law prevents litter and encourages the use of reusable bags by phasing out single-use plastic and paper bags.

The law bans plastic bags, regardless of thickness, at grocery stores and retail outlets, as well as paper bags at grocery stores measuring more than 2,500 square feet. It also bans polystyrene foam food containers and other products such as plates, cups, food trays and utensils; and makes plastic straws at restaurants available only upon request.

To Receive Three (3) Reusable South River Grocery Bags, Please Visit the DPW Office (Monday-Friday) located at 9 Ivan Way. “Available While Supplies Last”
