The City of Sunnyvale will hold two community meetings on October 21 to seek input from the public and answer questions regarding the Sunnyvale City Council’s study on banning single-use plastic bags.
The type of bags the City is referring to is the single-use plastic bags that are often used at grocery and department stores at the checkout to bag purchases. The study does not include plastic bags used within the store to put meat, produce, or other grocery items in. The study also does not refer to multiple use bags such as canvas grocery bags.
The two meetings will both be held on October 21. The first meeting is from 10 a.m. – 11:30 am.at the Sunnyvale Community Center Neighborhood (Recreation) Room, 555 E. Remington Drive, Sunnyvale. Another meeting will be held in the evening from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Sunnyvale Materials Recovery and Transfer Station, 301 Carl Road, Sunnyvale, in the administrative building. The first 30 minutes of the evening meeting will be a tour of the SMaRT system.
The community’s input will be included in a report to the City Council in November. If you can’t attend one of the community meetings on the 21st, you can submit your input online at: Recycling.inSunnyvale.com. The banning single-use plastic bags study issue is scheduled for the November 16 City Council meeting which starts at 7 p.m.
