I’m at a bit of a loss.

All of a sudden, the city seems worried about the amount of plastic people are throwing in the trash. It’s such an issue that city council has tasked staff with looking into how we can reduce all the plastic headed to landfills.

It’s not really a novel idea. A number of jurisdictions have gone further and banned plastic bags altogether, and even more are talking about banning plastic straws.
