Disposable Bag Restrictions Survey Deadline Extended to Jan. 15

 

The City of Tacoma has extended the deadline for the disposable shopping bag survey to Friday, Jan. 15. The survey deadline was extended to increase opportunity for members of the public and the business community to provide feedback on this issue. To date over 1,600 people have responded to the online survey, which is accessible from the City’s website.

 

In an effort to further the sustainability vision of the community, Tacoma City Council may consider placing restrictions on disposable shopping bag use in 2016. The City’s Office of Environmental Policy and Sustainability is seeking feedback on behalf of the City Council’s Infrastructure, Planning and Sustainability Committee to inform what action, if any, City Council will take on this issue.

 

For detailed information about upcoming meetings, disposable shopping bags, and related resources or to take the feedback survey, visit cityoftacoma.org/ShoppingBags.
