I use plastic grocery bags for garbage, which are free. If this passes, I will have to "buy" "plastic" bag for my garbage. What is the difference between the purchased "Plastic bags" and the "free grocery store plastic bags"????
This is just another way for the city to get more of our $$$. If they were so concerned with the environmnet, they would clean out all the sewers on a 6 month basis and give tickets out to people who dump their house garbage in the corner garbage pails...Send sanitation out to clean the streets more often (by hand) like they used to and clean the garbage people throw in parks along the streets. These people are wrong for doing that, but it needs to be cleaned up. this is what gets stuck in the storm drains and trees.
I say leave the grocery bags without cost to the public...we have enough to pay for without having to buy cloth bags to put our groceries in and having to buy plastic bags from the supermarkets!!!
I don't see any plastic grocery store bags flying around...just an excuse. Aug 21, 2013
