This summer, you won't be seeing any plastic bags around Harvey Cedars.

An ordinance has been adopted by the Harvey Cedars Borough Commission that will keep businesses from using single-use plastic carryout bags.

According to borough clerk Daina Dale, customers will need to bring their own reusable bags, or pay a fee for recycled paper bags.

Long Beach Township had already established a similar ban last year, and Harvey Cedars modeled their rules after that.
