Middletown also has a "Bring Your Own Bag" ordinance which bans plastic check out bags for all businesses, including restaurants. In an effort to protect our environment and reduce waste, businesses are encouraged not to hand out bags for one or two items. If a customer does not have their own bag, and needs a bag, businesses are required to charge ten cents for the bag.
