Sonoma County Bag Ban Update
Moving forward toward a ban?!?
April 1, 2011 - no April Foolin'!
At the March 16 So Co Waste Management Agency meeting, the JPA directed WMA staff to devise a road map for how the bag ban ordinance and process would go. These ten board members want to go back to their cities, and to the county, with a plan, thereby including the individual municipalities.
The ReduceSingleUse.org committee is preparing the schedule of upcoming city council meetings and we will need to have a presence representing the bag ban forces. We are also preparing informal, but hopefully persuasive, petitions to gather signatures in favor of a county-wide ban on plastic bags. The schedule will be posted here soon and is available on your city/town's website.
Presence at the next Waste Management Agency meeting would be great! April 20, 9AM, Santa Rosa City Council Chambers, 100 Santa Rosa Ave.
