The Upper Merion Board of Supervisors recently announced that starting in 2024 single-use carry-out bags, single-use plastic straws and utensils, and polystyrene food containers will be prohibited at the township’s commercial establishments.

The ban will affect the restaurants in the King of Prussia Mall, the largest enclosed shopping mall in the state, writes Sean Adams for PennLive.

The new ordinance will start on January 1, 2024, with just a ban on single-use carry-out bags but will extend to plastic utensils on July 1.

The ban is supported by Eric Goldstein, president and CEO of the King of Prussia District, according to WHYY.  Similar ordinances have been enacted in Lower Merion and Upper Moreland townships over the summer.
