TOLEDO (WTOL) - Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner wants to lessen the number of plastic bags that go into the landfill.
He's expected to present city council with an ordinance to establish a 'green' fee for disposable shopping bags.
According to our media partner the Toledo Blade, shoppers would be charged 5 cents for every plastic bag they take home from a store.
Seattle, San Francisco, and New York already have similar green taxes.
