Apr 24 - Bag Bans on the Move Across CA
Submitted by Recycling News on April 24, 2012 - 14:38.
Currently 44 cities and counties in the state are covered under plastic bag bans. More ordinances are being considered throughout the Golden State from north to south, and in just a few short weeks we expect this number to increase to 47.
Earlier this month the Ukiah City Council initially approved a plastic bag ban with a 10 cent charge on paper bags. The formal adoption is scheduled for a May 2 council meeting. Thank the Council for their leadership and take action here.
Yesterday evening the Fort Bragg City Council moved forward with a proposed bag ordinance similar to Ukiah's ordinance. The item will be considered for adoption on May 14. Take action here.
Tomorrow, the Solana Beach City Council discusses a proposed plastic bag ban. If approved, the City would schedule a final reading and vote. Support the ordinance and take action here.
