ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The State Department of Environmental Conservation will deliver re-usable bags to food banks across New York including Rochester’s Foodlink.
The statewide plastic bag ban officially went into effect Sunday.
Currently, the DEC is fighting a lawsuit in Albany County.
The suit claims the bag ban is unconstitutional.
