BALLINA COUNCIL VOTES TO RESTRICT PLASTIC BAGS
January 27, 2012 at 6:00 pm
Ballina Council is one step closer to restricting the use of plastic bags in the shire.
Councillor Jeff Johnson has been waging a war on plastic, and this week moved two motions in his fight against bag use.
One seeks a ban on single use plastic bags, while the other is calling for a container deposit scheme to be introduced in New South Wales.
Both motions have been unanimously supported and will be taken to the next conference to increase pressure on the state government to implement the changes.
