NYC Bag Fee

New York City Passes a Bill to charge 5¢ on Paper & Plastic Bags

The fee of 5¢ on every bag, paper and plastic, is supposed to take effect on October 1st, 2016.

Plastic bags “are a fundamental problem. They’re costing the taxpayer a huge amount of money because we have to put them in our waste stream and haul them to landfills all over. They’re literally not biodegradable. They’re made out of petroleum. They in fact make global warming worse,” de Blasio said. -Daily News
