ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Some stores, like Wegmans and Tops, have already stopped using plastic bags altogether.

However, enforcement of the law won't happen until at least mid-August.


The State Department of Environmental Conservation will give everyone 30 days’ notice before that begins. That announcement still hasn't happened.

The DEC has updated its website, citing the delay as part of an agreement with parties involved in an ongoing court battle over the law.
