A more uniform system may be coming, as a new bill could ban all plastic and paper bags, as well as polystyrene containers.

Most of the stores around Barnegat have eliminated plastic bags, but for whatever reason, it hasn't been a total ban. Some stores still have plastic, some have shifted to paper, some just offer recyclable plastic bags for a dime. I always remember to bring my reusable bags to Aldi, and I usually count on the paper bags at Target, but I always forget to bring anything to Walmart or ShopRite.
