The Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA), in partnership with the NJ Clean Communities Program and the NJ Food Council, is accepting reusable bags for donation for those in need.

Donations can be dropped off at ACUA’s GEO Administrative Building located at 6700 Delilah Road in Egg Harbor Township, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ACUA will also be accepting bags at its tent during the Atlantic County 4H Festival on August 11 and 12, and at its next Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off on Saturday, September 9.

ACUA has collected, cleaned, and delivered a total of 1,047 donated reusable bags to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey in Egg Harbor Township and Angels in Motion in Atlantic City.

The program is part of a pilot created through the NJ Clean Communities Program and NJ Food Council to address those in need and provide an outlet for those with an abundance of bags. The organizations are funding the sanitization of bags prior to donation. NJ Clean Communities and the NJ Food Council were responsible for implementing NJ’s Bag Ban when it went into effect in 2022.
