Logan Becomes Third City In Utah To Ban Plastic Bags
LOGAN, Utah – Logan just became the third city in Utah to do away with plastic bags.
The Logan City Council voted 3-2 Tuesday to adopt a plastic bag, slated to go into effect on Earth Day, April, 22, 2020.
City officials said they want businesses to move to recyclable or reusable containers, the Deseret News reports.
Cache County also on Tuesday passed a resolution supporting a countywide plastic reduction plan. That resolution includes options for merchants to either charge 10 cents per single-use plastic bag, or stop using them altogether. As is, the plan also requires businesses that don’t want to participate to be charged a special handling fee.
Park City in 2017 was the first in Utah to ban plastic bags. Moab did that same in 2018.
