Single-Use Plastic Bag and Straw Ban

After much hard work and research by the Township’s Sustainability Advisory Committee, the Board of Supervisors approved a single-use plastic carry-out bag and single-use plastic straw ban effective April 22, 2022. 

 April 22, 2022 is also, so the ban’s effective date is very appropriate and a win for the environment. The Township Sustainability Advisory Committee and Board of Supervisors were very supportive of instituting the ban, which will lead to less plastic waste and litter in West Goshen Township. The ban only affects certain retail businesses such as restaurants, convenience stores, grocery stores and other general merchandise retailers.  The Township has planned a series of public business-focused meetings and will be contacting those businesses with information beginning in early January 2022.
