125 East Avenue Common Council Chambers
The Norwalk Common Council will take a final vote on the proposed Plastic Checkout Bag Ban Ordinance on Tuesday. Your support at this meeting will make a huge difference.
Norwalk residents use about 30 million plastic bags a year, which are no longer recyclable in blue bins. Over 100,000 plastic bags end up in the Long Island Sound every year, where they break down into microplastics and are ingested by marine life.
