Act Now: Resolution on Bag Ban

Late last year, Governor Murphy signed the most progressive disposable bag law in the country, with the goal of phasing out single-use plastic and paper bags. Though many provisions of P.L.2020, c.117, including the ban on single-use plastic bags, do not become effective until next year, it is important that all stakeholders undertake efforts to educate the public about the law.

To that end, the New Jersey Clean Communities Council has drafted a model resolution for municipalities, designating the month of May as “Bag Up NJ” month. Municipalities are encouraged to adopt this resolution and look for ways to help get the message out about the upcoming changes. Those municipalities that adopt the resolution are asked to share a copy with the NJ Clean Communities Council by emailing

For more information concerning the rollout of the bag ban, including details about an upcoming webinar on May 27, 2021 about the subject, please see the New Jersey Clean Communities Council’s website.
