STAFFORD – At a recent council meeting, the council discussed implementing a ban on single use plastic bags.

According to Councilwoman Sharon McKenna, the council intends to introduce an ordinance relevant to this ban at the Feb. 13 meeting for a first reading.

“As a member of the Environmental Commission and the Stafford Township Green Team, I have been using my own bags for years while shopping,” said McKenna. “It is very gratifying to be working with other towns to gain ideas of how best to implement this for Stafford.”

McKenna noted that Stafford experiences a lot of business and that the council is working alongside these local businesses to protect the environment in a way that benefits everyone.
