Store Owners Have Another Month To Obey Plastic Bag Ban

Albany, N.Y. -Well a twist in regards to the plastic bag ban set to start Sunday.

Politico NY is reporting that retailers have another month to adjust to a plastic bag ban

The plastic bag ban still officially goes into effect on Sunday. That means retailers who charge sales taxes are supposed to stop handing out single-use plastic bags to customers at checkout.

But today the state’s Department of Environmental Conversation said it would not start penalizing businesses that use plastic bags until April 1, according to the news report.

That comes after a court challenge in Albany County Supreme Court from a plastic bag maker and New York City bodega owners
