That municipality joins the City of Rye and Larchmont, all in Westchester County, in banning those bags.&nbsp; The Towns of Mamaroneck and the Village of Tuckahoe are next to consider outlawing them.</p><p>The Citizens Campaign for the Environment lauds the efforts, said Jordan Christensen, the Hudson Valley program coordinator for the organization, who said Long Island communities are also enacting similar legislation.</p> Tue, 02 Apr 2013 12:03:14 +0000 Hank Gross 61237 at http://wamc.org Another municipality outlaws disposable plastic bags
