Bangor council passes on plastic bag ban

BANGOR - Bangor officials have decided against imposing a ban on plastic shopping bags and Styrofoam containers.

The council voted six to three Monday night against the ban.

 

This isn't the first time the council has considered the measure. It has shot down a previous call to ban the use of plastic bags or charge a fee to help keep them out of the environment.

 

The council decided not to move forward with a ban at this time, leaving the door open for future consideration.
