Share your thoughts on plastic bag use

The Town of Drumheller wants to hear your thoughts on plastic bag use, as well as your ideas for reducing their impact on the environment. An online questionnaire on how you use plastic bags and possible options for reducing their use is now live on the website. The survey will be open until August 25 and can be found at

“Many municipalities are looking at ways to deal effectively with plastic bags, as they can create an issue within the waste system”, explained Mayor Terry Yemen. “The information that we will collect from this survey will help Council, and the administration team, make an informed decision about any issues concerned with plastic bag use.”

“We are looking forward to hearing people’s thoughts on plastic bags,” added Darryl Drohomerski, “if people feel their use in Drumheller is an issue we will look at the options and work with residents and retailers to come up with a plan that is reasonable and sustainable”.
