ALLENTOWN – Beginning Thursday, September 22, Wegmans will remove single-use plastic grocery bags from its 18 stores in PA. The move marks the completion of the company’s effort to eliminate single-use plastic grocery bags company-wide by the end of the year. While paper grocery bags will be available for a 5-cent charge per bag, Wegmans’ goal is to shift customers to reusable bags. The amount collected from the paper-bag charge will be donated to each store’s local United Way. In our area, Wegmans have a store in Lancaster, Harrisburg, and Downingtown.
