NYC Establishes Plastic Bag Recycling Program
While China has gone for an all out ban, NYC yesterday passed a bill requiring large stores and retail chains to collect and recycle plastic bags they give to shoppers. When it takes effect, retailers must provide recycling bins for the bags in a prominent place in the store. The legislation applies to stores of 5,000 square feet or larger, as well as all branches of chains with more than five locations in the city. The NYTimes has further details of the vote.
