Burbank residents are being asked to weigh in on a plan to implement a citywide ban on plastic bags.
The Burbank Green Alliance and the Natural Resources Defense Council are co-hosting a community forum Wednesday to discuss plastic pollution and get residents’ opinions on implementing a bag ban in Burbank.
Featured speaker will be Ferris Kawar, recycling specialist for the Burbank Recycle Center, who plans to share information about the city’s efforts to move the bag ban forward.
Next month, the Burbank City Council is slated to consider an ordinance similar to a plastic bag ban in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.
“We’ve monitored [its] implementation for the last two years — it seems to have gone very smoothly for county businesses as well as residents,” Kawar said.
