Plastic Nip Bottles Attleboro

A plastic nip bottle lies on the side of the road in downtown Attleboro in October 2020.

ATTLEBORO — A proposed ban on nip bottles was scheduled for a city council vote last week, but it was put off because ordinance committee Chair Cathleen DeSimone said she has a better idea.

While she’s in favor of the ban put forth by Mayor Paul Heroux, DeSimone is now hoping for action from the state legislature that would make a ban unnecessary.
