[activity] Make and Learn: Reusable Bags and the Plastic Bag Ban
6:00 PM
Solid Waste District HQ, 4750 East 131 Street, Garfield Heights
Register here.

Learn how to make a reusable shopping bag out of an old t-shirt (bring your own, or we will provide some). 
While you're crafting, we'll answer your questions about the Cuyahoga County Plastic Bag Ban, address the current challenges in plastic recycling and discuss strategies for reducing plastic waste in your household.

Cuyahoga County's plastic bag ban went into effect on January 1, 2020. The ordinance prohibits grocers and retailers in Cuyahoga County from providing plastic bags at the checkout. It was passed by County Council in late May. 
Learn more about the ban and the types of bags it includes at www.cuyahogacounty.us/byobag. For questions about the bag ban, contact the Cuyahoga County Department of Consumer Affairs at (216) 443-7035.
