Parsippany-Troy Hills Mayor Michael Soriano signs ordinance banning single-use plastic bags

PARSIPPANY – Parsippany Mayor Michael Soriano announced at the council meeting on Tuesday that Parsippany’s ban on single-use plastic bags would return on September 8.

The township imposed a moratorium on the application of the ban in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Many cities have suspended their plastic bag bans during the pandemic, over fears the virus could cling to reusable surfaces.

Parsippany’s board voted in 2019 to ban single-use plastic bags, as well as paper bags that are not 100% recyclable. The ban went into effect on February 6, 2020, as the township encouraged the public to bring their own reusable bags to businesses.
