Newport City Council: No more thin plastic shopping bags unless they’re re-usable

Single use plastic shopping bags…

The Newport City Council has decided that they will reinstate the city ban on single use plastic bags in Newport starting March 31.  The bigger stores in Newport will have to give up their flimsy plastic bags in favor of re-usable bags, namely thicker plastic, cloth or paper.  The smaller stores must give up their flimsy plastic bags for thicker plastic, cloth or paper by May 1st.  From that point forward, shoppers who don’t bring their own bags will have to pay the store a nickel per paper bag to get their groceries home.

The issue of styrofoam containers is still swirling around but at this point it’s possible that styrofoam containers of any sort may be banned in Newport  starting January 1st 2022.

 The state has been toying with the idea of outlawing the thin plastic bags effective sometime this summer.   But the Newport City Council said they don’t want to wait that long and decided to make their move:  only recyclable bags or paper bags will be allowed in Newport stores.

The issue of styrofoam containers is still swirling around but at this point it’s possible that styrofoam containers of any sort will be banned in Lincoln County starting January 1st.
