A ban on single-use plastic bags is now in effect in Westerly. There are some exceptions such as newspaper, pet waste, garbage, yard waste, and laundry dry cleaning bags. Violators will have 14 days from notification by the town to be in compliance or face fines of up to 300-dollars a day for noncompliance. Westerly joins more than a dozen other Rhode Island communities that have instituted a plastic bag ban.
