The Bagshare Project, a statewide challenge in Massachusetts that makes it easier for cities and towns to replace plastic bags with reusable bags, is helping the Town of Adams improve its recycling efforts. Through the challenge, the town has set a goal to make 8,400 reusable bags (one for each resident) by Earth Day, April 22.

The set goal will help residents comply with an anti-plastic bag ordinance that goes into effect on March 30.
