Document Description
The proposed ban on the issuance of plastic carryout bags consists of an ordinance to be adopted prohibiting certain retail establishments from issuing plastic carryout bags in the unincorporated territories of the County of Los Angeles. The County would also encourage adoption of comparable ordinances by each of the 88 incorporated cities in the County. The proposed ordinances being considered would ban the issuance of plastic carryout bags by any retail establishment that is located in the unincorporated territories or incorporated cities of the County. The retail establishments that would be affected by the proposed ordinances include any that (1) meet the definition of a "supermarket" as stated in the California Public Resources Code, Section 14526.5; or (2) are buildings with over 10,000 sf of retail space that generates sales or use tax pursuant to the Bradley-Burns Uniform Local Sales and Use Tax Law and have a pharmacy licensed pursuant to Chapter 9 of Division 2 of the Business and Professions Code.
