Our story on Monday claiming that QuickChek is lying to its customers in Highlands regarding its plastic bag ban was not entirely accurate.
QuickChek claims it is not giving its customers shopping bags “due to the recent passing of local legislation.” We reported that “Highlands does not have an ordinance that prohibits stores from providing their customers with shopping bags, plastic or otherwise.”
Both statements are untrue. Highlands passed a plastic bag ban 30 years ago. 30 years is only “recent” in a biblical context. MMM regrets its error.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News | Tags: Carolyn Broullon, Highlands, Monmouth County News, Plastic bag ban, QuickChek | Comments Off on Correction: Highlands Passed A Plastic Shopping Bag Ban 30 Years Ago
