Springfield Debates Plastic Bags

The Springfield City Council is apparently ready to take another look at a potential ban on single use plastic bags.  

Councilors had heard presentations back in 2016 but never took a final vote and the issue died then.

Now, councilors will hear a proposal which would require a retailer, if they have a checkout line that offers bags, to offer bags that can be composted or recycled.

A meeting at Springfield City Hall is expected tomorrow night.

No votes will be taken.
