THOSE PLASTIC BAGS OUR GROCERIES AND STORE ITEMS GET PLACED INTO MAY BE SUBJECT TO A CITY ORDINANCE IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

SIOUX CITY HAS POSTED SURVEYS ON THE CITY WEBSITE FOR CONSUMERS AND RETAILERS ON A POSSIBLE BAN OF SINGLE USE PLASTIC BAGS.

MELISSA CAMPBELL OF THE CITY ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES DEPARTMENT SAYS 30 MILLION PLASTIC BAGS ARE USED ANNUALLY IN SIOUX CITY WITH EACH BAG USED FOR AN AVERAGE OF ONLY 12 MINUTES:


OC…..THEM FOR FOOD. :24

CAMPBELL SAYS THE IDEA IS AN INITIATIVE OF MAYOR BOB SCOTT, AND SHE WILL TALK WITH RETAILERS ABOUT THE EFFECT AN ORDINANCE WOULD HAVE ON THEM.

SHE SAYS THE ORDINANCE WOULDN’T NECESSARILY BE A BAN, ALTHOUGH THE SURVEY ON THE CITY WEBSITE IS CALLED A SINGLE USE PLASTIC BAG BAN:


OC….. GO FROM THERE. ;22

CAMPBELL SAYS THE BAGS ALSO CREATE AN ISSUE FOR THE CITY’S LANDFILL OPERATOR:


OC….AS WELL. ;13

YOU CAN TAKE THE SHORT SURVEY ONLINE AT SIOUX-CITY.ORG.
