Sioux City Looks To Lose Plastic Bags

June 7, 2014, 2:19 PM

Sioux City Looks To Lose Plastic Bags
SIOUX CITY, IOWA -

Officials in Sioux City are considering a local law to cut down on litter from plastic shopping bags.

Details have yet to be worked out, but a possible ordinance likely would not contain an outright ban on plastic bags. Instead, the city could impose a fee on plastic bags or encourage retailers to issue reusable bags.

City environmental services analyst Melissa Campbell says any restrictions might affect only larger, corporate businesses at first.

Campbell says the push to create an ordinance began after people complained to her office about plastic bags getting stuck in fences and trees and littering streets and parks.
