Paper or Plastic debate in Eau Claire


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Area business owners are being asked to weigh in on the debate over paper versus plastic.

The Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce sent out surveys this week to its 1,200 members. They're being asked their opinions on whether paper or plastic bags, or both, should be banned in Eau Claire.

That's an issue a city committee is examining, along with other possibilities such as charging a surcharge for bags, and ways to encourage re-use and recycling. 

That committee will make its recommendations in October.
