Scarborough Fair owner and VisionKershaw 2030 co-author Paula Scarborough shows off different types of reusable bags she says costs her between 75 cents and $2.50 during Camden City Council’s public hearing on a proposed ordinance to ban single-use plastic bags. Scarborough said while she would comply with the ordinance if such a ban went into effect, the cost of reusable bags would be difficult to absorb. Council could vote on the ordinance as early as March 12. - photo by Martin L. Cahn/C-I
Six people spoke during a public hearing Tuesday night on Camden City Councilman Jeffrey Graham’s proposed ordinance to ban single-use plastic bags in the city. The six evenly split on being for or against the proposal, which would ban providing single-use plastic carryout bags at any city facility, city-sponsored event or any event held on city property; and ban any business establishment within the city limits from providing single-use plastic carryout bags to its customers.
