After approving a Reusable Bag Ordinance last month, the Cupertino City Council will hold a final vote on the bag ordinance this evening.
Cupertino is located in the Silicon Valley west of San Jose, CA and has a population of just under 60,000. Apple Inc. is headquartered in the city.
The ordinance, once adopted, goes into effect this October. Plastic bags would be prohibited in all stores, while paper bags would be sold for ten cents each.
