Plastic Bag Alert
A message from the Steuben County Environmental Management Council and the Department of Public Works of Steuben County.
- Plastic bags litter our roadsides and waterways.
- The bags fly onto adjoining fields when garbage is dumped at our landfill.
- 12,000,000 barrels of oil are used to make the 100 billion plastic bags used each year in the United States. The bags take a thousand years to degrade.
