NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) — New Yorkers need to prepare for no plastic. The plastic bag ban, which passed through the state legislature last year, was originally supposed be enforced this past March before being pushed back. Enforcement of the ban now goes into effect starting on Monday, October 19.
This means the plastic bags you get in grocery stores and in your takeout meals will be no longer. The law would prohibit essentially any bag made of plastic, whether nylon, polyester, or other plastics. This also means you will need to bring your own reusable bag to grocery shop.
Some stores will be offering paper bags at a small fee.
