04-14-14 ASHLAND CITY COUNCIL TO CONSIDER BANNING PLASTIC SHOPPING BAGS

Apr 14, 2014 -- 5:40am

THE ASHLAND CITY COUNCIL WILL CONSIDER BANNING PLASTIC SHOPPING BAGS DURING  ITS MEETING TOMORROW NIGHT...
THE  ORDINANCE  WOULD  BAN THE DISTRIBUTION OF  PLASTIC BAGS BY RETAIL BUSINESSES IN TOWN...
AND WOULD BE REPLACED BY PAPER BAGS...AS LONG AS THEY CONTAIN AT LEAST 40% OF RECYCLED CONTENT. THERE WOULD ALSO BE A MINIMUM OF A 25 CENT CHARGE FOR THAT PAPER BAG. IF THE ORDINANCE BECOMES LAW...IT WOULD NOT BE ENFORCED FOR SIX MONTHS... GIVING BUSINESSES TIME TO USE THE REST OF THEIR PLASTIC BAGS AND DEVELOP A PLAN TO PROVIDE THE PERMITTED PAPER BAGS.
