Bagging the Bag

January 8, 2014, 12:00 am
As the city of Santa Fe gets ready for new rules regulating the use of plastic bags, area residents can pick up reusable bags courtesy of their very own tax dollars. The Environmental Services Department is distributing blue grocery sacks made of recycled materials at several locations including the mayor’s office, the Water Division building on San Mateo Road and Public Works offices on Siler Road. The sacks are also slated to be available later this month at certain retail establishments.

The rules that prohibit retail stores from passing out plastic bags at the checkout are set to go into effect on Feb. 27. (Julie Ann Grimm)
