DES MOINES, Iowa — Paper or plastic? Shoppers in Sioux City may be hearing that question a lot less in the near future.

“We’re looking at all possible options to get people to use plastic bags less and reusable cloth bags more,” city environmental analyst Melissa Campbell told Iowa Watchdog.

In response to complaints about plastic shopping bags littering Sioux City, Mayor Bob Scott directed Campbell to begin developing plans to reduce the number of those bags.
