Patchogue Village’s Protecting the Environment Committee is looking into a ban on single-use plastic bags.
The committee is holding an education and information forum on the subject at Patchogue Theatre, 71 E. Main St., March 18th at 7 p.m.
The committee and St. Joseph’s College are currently conducting a survey about plastic bag usage, which can be found by clicking here, with results to be presented at the forum.
A public hearing on the ban is planned for April 27, Village Trustee Joseph Keyes said at Monday’s Patchogue Village Board of Trustees meeting.
Should a decision be made in April there would be a six-month transition period before the ban would go into effect on Nov. 1, Keyes told the Long Island Advance.
