BYO Washington

BYO is an initiative to eliminate single-use disposable plastic checkout bags in the town of Washington.


Eliminating single-use plastic bags:

  • Saves taxpayers money

  • Conserves our oil supply, a non-renewable resource

  • Reduces pollution, keeping our air, water and soil safe and clean.

BYO Washington Ordinance is coming soon!
