Philly’s Plastic Bags Ban • Fines & Enforcement Begins Tomorrow

Philadelphia will begin enforcing its ban on single-use plastic bags on Friday (April 1st) with businesses that violate the law facing fines of at least $150.
  • October 1, 2021–April 1, 2022: The City will write warnings for businesses using non-compliant bags.
  • April 1, 2022 onward: The City will issue violation notices for businesses using non-compliant bags. These notices carry a minimum penalty of $150.

Each violation of the ordinance is subject to a separate fine.
If businesses repeatedly or egregiously violate the ordinance, the City may take them to court and ask the judge to impose additional penalties.
