Senate Passes Statewide Plastic Bag Ban

A bill to ban plastic bags statewide is going to the House. The Senate yesterday passed the Plastic Waste Reduction Act introduced by Senate President Dominick Ruggerio. Under the legislation, retailers would be banned from providing any single-use plastic checkout bag or any paper checkout bag that is not a recyclable paper bag or a paper carryout bag at restaurants. More than a dozen Rhode Island communities have already enacted plastic bag bans.
