Town of The Pas May Bring Back Plastic Shopping Bag Ban

Due to concerns over sanitation, The Town of The Pas lifted its ban on plastic shopping bags in stores when the COVID 19 pandemic first hit and during Monday night’s council meeting mayor and council discussed the possibility of reinstating the ban.


Since the ban was lifted The Pas Recycling Centre announced that they found many of these plastic shopping bags in their recycling stream and they would like the ban to be put back in place and the town also discussed the possibility of allowing businesses to use bio degradable plastic bags as an alternative.


This issue is expected to be brought forward at the next council meeting and businesses will be notified in advance if the ban on plastic shopping bags is reinstated.
