The City of San Jose is proposing to adopt an ordinance regulating the distribution of single-use carryout bags at the point of sale. The ordinance would consist of revisions to Chapter 9.10 of the City's Municipal Code and will prohibit the distribution of single-use carryout paper and plastic bags at the point of sale (i.e., chek-out) for all commercial retail businesses in San Jose except restaurants. An exception is made for "green" paper bags containing at least 40 percent recycled content, this may be accompanied by a fee to the customers to be retained by the retailers [to cover the cost to the business of providing the bags].
