Plastic Shopping Bag Ban Reinstated in The Pas

The Pas Town Council voted in favour of reinstating the plastic shopping bag ban in the community, a ban that was lifted as a temporarily measure in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, in order to keep workers safe and reduce the chances of spreading the virus.

 

Local businesses will be given some time to get rid of the remaining plastic shopping bag stocks that they already have.

 

Under this new by law, compostable shopping bags will be permitted, this was not allowed when the old plastic shopping bag ban was in place.

 

The goal of the ban is to reduce unnecessary waste especially discarded single use plastics.
