Hamden Looking to Ban Plastic Bags

Dante Turo

HAMDEN – Hamden is taking an initiative to get rid of plastic bags at checkouts in all stores.

Starting in 2021, businesses are not allowed to offer plastic bags to shoppers. This doesn’t include plastic bags for meat, seafood, bakery goods, and flowers.

If you don’t have a recyclable bag, it may be time to invest in one. Besides, you are helping the environment by using one moving forward.

“I’m a supporter of it. Anything that we can to get rid of excess plastic. I got my reusable bag. Everyone else can get theirs,” Josh Gudelski said. “It’s the same shopping experience. I’m just not using plastic bags.”
