Toronto’s 5¢ Plastic Bag FeePosted on June 13, 2011 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
The gestation period for Toronto’s 5¢ bag fee has finally come to term. Nine months ago, on June 1st, 2009, the city-wide fee came into effect. Even amongst the initiative’s supporters and naysayers, there is still a bit of uncertainty and confusion. City Council was criticized by some merchant groups for not clearly communicating the plan to retailers and consumers.
