The City of Halifax, Nova Scotia recently passed a law on August 1, 2015 that would limit one black garbage bag per household. All other trash must be disposed of in clear trash bags. In passing this law, Halifax officials hoped to encourage people to sort their garbage and increase recycling.
Two months after transitioning to clear garbage bags, the city says the process has been going pretty well. City officials claim there has been less garbage at the curb and for the most part, a very high compliance rate among people using clear garbage bags. There has also been an increase in the amount of recycling. There are many benefits to using clear trash bags. To experience them yourself, shop PlasticMill's selection of clear trash bags.
