  1. You have got to be kidding…no plastic bags for garbage…what a mess that would be. I would just put my filled, plastic bags inside a paper bag if that law ever came to pass! There is no way I am going to have soggy garbage bags sitting around waiting for pick up.

  2. Mary,
    The way the agenda item reads it seems like they are talking about what the merchants put sold items into. If they are referring to “garbage” I totally agree with you, that would be insane and unsanitary, can’t imagine the NYS Health Department agreeing with that!!!
