New Jersey’s single-use bag ban caused some unintended effects, such as residents accumulating reusable bags as a result of grocery deliveries. A proposed amendment to the bag ban would allow online customers to have groceries delivered in cardboard boxes or in paper bags meeting 40% post-consumer recycling standards. But state Sen. Bob Smith, who introduced the bill, told NJ Advanced Media Thursday he now believes issues with third-party suppliers will resolve itself. The bag ban has been in effect since May.
