Danvers passed a Plastic Bag Reduction By-law at our May 2018 Town Meeting. Effective June 1, 2019, disposable plastic checkout bags will no longer be allowed in Danvers.
To help any residents who may be impacted by this ban, Danvers is working with Danvers Interfaith Partnership’s Earth Stewards to organize “Reusable Bag Drives”. The first Drive will occur at Danvers Zero Waste Weekend on October 20 & 21.
So while you’re cleaning out your closets, clean out your car trunk and donate any reusable bags you don’t have a need for. Thank you for your contributions!
