Wegmans to phase out single-use plastic bags in New York

January 6, 2020 - from The Spoon:

"Wegmans Food Markets plans to pull single-use plastic bags from all of its 47 New York stores on Jan. 27."

"Rochester, N.Y.-based Wegmans said Monday that the move follows a pilot launched in July in which the plastic bags were removed at two stores in Corning and Ithaca, N.Y. The retailer noted that it’s phasing out the bags before a New York state ban goes into effect on March 1."

"At stores where the county or municipality hasn’t already implemented a 5-cent fee for paper bags, Wegmans will charge 5 cents per paper bag. The amount collected from the paper bag charge will be donated to the local food bank serving each region."
