Apparently believing that Camden County residents are not concerned with high taxes, crime and roads last night the all Democratic Camden County Board of Freeholders voted to ban single use plastics at Camden County facilities and Camden County sponsored events. The ban will take effect on January 1, 2020. The ban includes single-use plastic bags, plastic straws, stirrers, utensils, Styrofoam and bottled water in single-serve containers. It also includes balloons which were banned via a previous resolution in February 2018.
Vendors who work with Camden County must adhere to the ban in addition to the Camden County Jail, Camden County Library, Camden County College, the restaurant at Cooper River Park and vending machines at county facilities. The ban will also apply to all county sponsored events. The ban does not currently impact private businesses.
“I fail to see how banning plastics in one of the highest taxed counties in the highest taxed state in the nation helps the hardworking taxpayers of Camden County.” Camden County Republican Chair Rich Ambrosino said, “Tomorrow night is our fall fundraiser at Trump National in Pine Hill and I promise there will be a tiny red plastic straw in every drink ordered if I have to buy the straws myself.”
As an entrepreneur I see this as a business opportunity. I plan to become Camden County’s largest illegal plastic straw dealer. Look for me hiding behind vending machines at county facilities selling plastic straws for $5.00 per straw.
