Camden County Freeholder Jon Young on Plastic Ban

The Dom Giordano Program
Monday, October 21st
Camden County Freeholder Jon Young joins the Dom Giordano Program to explain the reasoning behind Camden County’s decision to plan single-use plastics like straws, utensils, and water bottles from county buildings and events. Freeholder Young breaks down exactly what it is that’d being banned, and the economic impact it’d have on the county, which Young describes as ‘minute’. Young describes the reason behind the ban as an obvious solution to plastics which take incredibly long to break down, and says the county and others should look into more biologically friendly replacements such as hemp. The Freeholder also elaborates on where the ban will take place.
