A public hearing on the plastic bag ordinance has been set for 8 p.m. this evening, Feb. 6, at the Representative Town Meeting in the Town Hall auditorium.

The ordinance, proposed by BYO (Bring Your Own) Darien, phases out over a six-month period plastic bags of less than 12 mil thickness and requires a 10 cent charge for recycled paper bags, with the charge being retained by the retailer.
