Plastic Bag Ban

The Regional District of North Okanagan is moving ahead with a bylaw for regulating single use plastics checkout bags.

RDNO says governments within the district will receive a copy of the proposed bylaw and will be able to provide input.

The board says they want to have meetings with industry representatives, advocacy groups and local businesses, including hosting Open Houses.  The  timeline for the by-law shows fines would not be introduced until January 2020.
