New Jersey Dept of Environmental Police, Set up Snitch Line to Report Contraband Plastic and Styrofoam Users

Perhaps in the grand scheme of all things facing us, this action by New Jersey may seem a little silly; however, it’s still nuts.

Comrades, starting today it is illegal in New Jersey to have plastic or paper bags in stores for shoppers.  Additionally, restaurants,
cafeterias and food trucks are forbidden to serve take-out food in Styrofoam-like products. Also, all retailers must stop selling
polystyrene foam products like plates and cups.  Drinking straws require a permit for restricted distribution as monitored by the Department of
Health.

To ensure legal compliance within the Garden State, officials in New Jersey have established a snitch hotline for citizens to call the Dept
of Environmental Police (DEP) and report dissident violators, while the state ministry of citizen compliance have created a “WARN DEP” app to
facilitate easier snitching on your neighbors if you spot them using contraband containers.

This is easy! We have the phone number, so everyone, from every State, overwhelm the lines with calls. Report whatever State agency in
NJ you hate. Begin with any one of the programs that give money away, and include every department within the hierarchy, the Secretary of
State (saw an employee carrying a doggie box, Justice pouring coffee into styrofoam cups in secret meetings.

It doesn’t have to be true! Swamp ‘em. Push back the Alinsky rules right back in their faces. Total derision. We can play this game. It’s a
civic duty. 877 WARN-DEP. 877 927-6337

I’m old enough to remember when plastic bags were touted as a way to “save a tree.”

Legislature OKs bill closing plastic bag ban loophole

Excerpt:

A 2019 law, that went into effect Jan. 1, prohibited large stores and chain retailers from providing “any single-use plastic carryout bag” to consumers at the point of sale.

Rather than offer reusable fabric bags or paper, however, many stores in the First State took advantage of an exemption in the 2019 bill that allowed for thicker plastic bags, reasoning that those plastic bags would be reusable, rather than single use. The reality after their use began, however, was that most consumers weren’t reusing the thicker bags as recommended.

The only people I’d report are politicians and bureaucrats.

I can get behind any effort to muck up the system.

Know any good “black hat hackers” for a good DDOS?
