The Community Work Day Program on Maui is conducting a program to accept unused plastic check-out bags from merchants and distribute them to people to be used for animal waste and as trash bags.

Maui and Kauai counties to implemented laws, effective today, that bans the use of plastic check-out bags by businesses.

Unused stocks of shopping bags cannot be placed in the landfill because they may get blown away, the program said.

In order to receive plastic bags, residents must show that they own three reuseable shopping bags.

For information, call 877-2524 or e-mail info@cwdhawaii.org.

This repurposing program is conducted in conjuction with the Maui County Recycling Section, Solid Waste Division and Department of Environmental Management.
