| 5| 1
   On Tuesday , May 3 , the Willingboro Township Council issued a proclamation , designating May as Bag Up New Jersey Month . This is aligned with the New Jersey Clean Communities Council’s new single use plastic and paper bag ban outreach campaign , which has a simple message: Bring your own reusable bag ( s ) when you shop .
   This campaign educates and reminds consumers about their options for sustainability at the checkout counter . Consumers can bring their own reusable bags when they shop and recycle their plastic bags .
   On Nov . 4 , 2020 , Governor Phil Murphy and the New Jersey Legislature enacted the most progressive bag ban law in the country . The law prevents litter and encourages the use of reusable bags by phasing out single - use plastic and paper bags .
   The law bans plastic bags , regardless of thickness , at grocery stores and retail outlets , as well as paper bags at grocery stores measuring more than 2 , 500 square feet . It also bans polystyrene foam food service products; and makes plastic straws at restaurants available only upon request .
    Single - use paper carryout bags are allowed to be provided or sold , except by grocery stores equal to or larger than 2500 square feet , which may only provide or sell reusable carryout bags .
   Campaigns have been established asking NJ residents to make the change and ditch the plastic .  
   Willingboro Township , as a Clean Communities partner , offered reusable bags to residents during their recent spring Clean Communities Clean - Up .
