Document Description
The project is the adoption of a proposed ordinance by the City of Huntington Beach City Council that would prohibit the distribution of plastic carryout bags in commercial point of sale purchases within the City of Huntington Beach and establish a ten (10) cent charge on the issuance of recyclable paper carryout bags at all grocery stores and supermarkets, drug stores, pharmacies, convenience stores, foodmarts and Huntington Beach farmers markets. All stores affected by the proposed ordinance would be required to provide reusable bags to customers for either sale or at no charge, and each store would be strongly encouraged to promote the use of reusable bags through staff education and customer outreach.
