Supervisors target plastic newspaper bags

San Francisco's ban on plastic bags may soon extend to newspaper delivery.

 The Board of Supervisors City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee is expected to meet Oct. 26 to vote on proposed legislation that would ban plastic newspaper delivery bags unless they are compostable or recyclable in the blue bins.

The hearing comes just five days after a law mandating the sorting of garbage into three different bins kicks in.
