A bag ban should be decided by the City Council members. Taxpayers would have to pay for a ballot.
I’m in favor of a ban because I see plastic bags blowing all over which makes unnecessary pollution, and makes Newport trashy, and endangers wildlife.
Thompson Sanitary is begging us to stop using single use plastic bags because the bags are so light, they blow off the truck, make a mess at the dump, and clog recycling machines.
Ban the bag now.
