Reusable Bag Initiative
Join the City of Frederick in taking steps to reduce waste and pollution. Starting Jan. 1st, 2024 you can participate in this change by replacing single
use plastic bag with reusable ones.
Single use plastic bags are not biodegradable. They take about 1,000 years to decompose in a landfill. Even then the bags are not completely decomposed, but rather become microplastics that occupy toxins and further pollute the environment. Plastic bags which are not properly disposed of further litter our environment and pose harm to animals and our waterways.
