Recyclable Materials (Support)

SB 1348 (Polsky) and HB 1563 (Mooney) require the Department of Environmental Protection to review and update its 2010 Retail Bags Report on the regulation of auxiliary containers, wrappings and disposable plastic bags and to submit a report to the Legislature by December 2021. In addition, SB 1348 modifies the current law preemption of local government regulation of these materials by specifying that local governments shall not regulate the use of auxiliary containers, plastic bags and wrappings until the Legislature adopts the recommendations of the Department contained in the report or until July 2022, whichever is earlier.
