Ridgewood NJ, Village of Ridgewood Mayor Ramon Hache statement on
the ordinance to ban single-use plastic bags :
“Two weeks ago, we introduced an ordinance to ban single-use plastic bags in the Village. This is a very important step in protecting the environment and would not have been possible without the collaboration between the Village Council, the Ridgewood Environmental Advisory Committee and Green Team. A special thank you to Councilman Sedon as Council liaison to these committees.
Although the ban will be adopted this summer, it will not go into effect until January 1, 2020. Over the next 6 months, we will have an educational and public awareness campaign to engage with our community and educate residents.”
