The San Jose City Council directed city staff yesterday to study possible policy solutions to the growing problem of plastic bags. A memo, written by Council Member Kansen Chu and coauthored by Mayor Chuck Reed and Councilmember Nora Campos directed staff to study a ban or other solutions. CAW provided testimony at the hearing.
Staff will consider all policy options, including a ban or a plastic bag disposal rate benchmark system, such as the one to be voted on in Los Angeles County this Tuesday.
