Launch of Public Outreach Campaign for County's New Carryout Bag Law
Wednesday, November 16
Department of Environmental Protection Director Bob Hoyt holds up a discarded plastic bag to visually make the point about why discarded plastic bags are detrimental to the health of our waterways.—and why the new bag law is important.
Against a backdrop of reusable bags, County Executive Ike Leggett speaks at the launch event, held at Westfield Montgomery, for the new bag law outreach campaign.
Barwood Cabs is helping to spread the word about the upcoming bag law with cab toppers and by distributing reusable bags to passengers. County Executive Ike Leggett and Barwood President Lee Barnes display the bags that drivers will give out.
