Single-Use Plastic Bag Implementation Guide
Single-use plastic products can be defined as items that are used once, or for a short period of time (as little as just a couple of seconds!) before being thrown away. This type of plastic waste has a big impact on the environment and our health. Single-use plastic products are more likely to pollute the environment and end up in our seas than reusable options.
The Springfield Township Environmental Advisory Commission has proposed a Single-Use Plastic Bag ordinance to regulate the use of single-use plastic carry-out bags, as well as an implementation guide for the ordinance. These documents can be viewed below.
