Plastic Grocery Bag BanSeptember 30th, 2012 at 4:40 pm by Hawa Konte under Community Affairs, News
A push to ban plastic grocery bags is moving forward in Santa Fe.
A city advisory committee is now considering an ordinance prohibiting plastic bags and ordering stores to collect fees if they provide paper bags.
The idea is facing opposition from the plastics industry and large scale retailers.
Albertson’s officials have said they would prefer a recycling program instead.
The city committee meets Monday.
