Logan City discusses possible ban on plastic bags

Local News

LOGAN, Utah (ABC4 News) – Plastic grocery bags have at least six more months of life in Logan.

The Logan City Council came together to discuss a ban on plastic bags Tuesday night, but the decision was tabled for six more months.

They say they are giving time for the waste advisory council to figure out exactly how a ban on plastic bags would go into effect.

According to City Council members, there are discussions taking place with other cities in Cache County that may result in a county-wide ban on plastic grocery sacks.

Mayor Jeff Young said, “Utah’s a good example, there are two cities in Utah that have a ban right now. So I’m just saying okay let’s have the dialogue, instead of maybe having one more city maybe we could have other cities or we could have a plan put together that shows we can all be responsible in a way that it could work for businesses, work for cities, work for counties, together and we can still accomplish a lot of the same goals.”

Mayor Young says the abundance of plastic bags is a state issue but for now, he would like to get input from Cache County on how to move forward before bringing potential bag bans to other parts of the state.
