JACKSON, WY — Don’t forget: Starting April 15, larger grocers will no longer use single-use plastic bags at point-of-sale.
Ordinance 1205, aka the “plastic bag ban,” passed in January, and phase one goes into effect on April 15.
What’s this mean? From April 15 on, businesses can no longer distribute any plastic bags and point-of-sale. Produce bags, dry cleaner bags, etc. are exempt. So shoppers will need to remember to bring their own reusable bags or pay a fee for a paper bag.
Buckrail offered some tips for consumers when the ordinance passed in January — refresh your memory.
For businesses, Town of Jackson and Teton County’s Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling have compiled some helpful tips to prepare for the day some celebrate, others dread.
